ICMR said that a surveillance network has been set up at 30 different places in the country, where samples of patients are being tested. In the samples tested here, 0.1 percent were found to have secondary infection ie infection with more than one virus. While H3N2 in 10 samples, Victoria virus has been identified in 18.

It has been told by ICMR that the symptoms of all these viruses are very similar. In such a situation, if any person shows its symptoms for more than three or four days, then he must consult a doctor.
