Gandhinagar, Oct 30: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is down with swine flu two days after returning from Russia, doctors at a hospital said Friday. This was confirmed by Atul Patel, the doctor at a government civil hospital on Friday morning. The chief minister who returned from his three day-visit to Russia on Wednesday worked through Thursday attending his official engagements, despite feeling tired and coughing frequently.
As doctors in attendance checked him, samples were taken to check for the H1N1 virus. By evening, his fever shot up and speculation mounted that he had swine flu. Following confirmation, Modi has been put under swine flu medication and quarantined at his own official residence here. The government has earlier tried to hide his identity and the sample was labelled with a different name- “Ramesh”.
