In 2010, that saw the swine flu dig its heels in India, Mahrashtra, with 6,814 cases, Delhi (2,725) and Karnataka ( 2,575) topped the list of infections. And out of 1.46 million closed cases, 83% (1.2 million) were recoveries, and the rest deaths. 13 new cases were reported in the state on May 3.

The state saw 678 new cases and 27 deaths on May 3. Authorities say most of people who tested positive in the last one day are linked to the Koyambedu vegetable and fruit market, one of the largest markets in the country. Experts say that India should still be testing more than it now is, and the number of cases detected is expected to go up as states ramp up testing.
