Tehran, YJC. Health official say that there is no basis to reports on the outbreak of swine influenza in Iran.

Dr. Abbas Zarenejad, Managing Director of the Public Relations Office of the Ministry of Health said that people need not worry since there is no case of swine influenza in the country.

He said that cases of influenza reported across the country are of the seasonal type, which leads to death in cases, but there has been no case of the swine influenza.

The seasonal influenza is nothing new in the country, yet some people have named it the swine influenza and some others have called it ebula and caused much worry, he stated.

He called on the public to avoid referring to non-authorized sources on such issues since they are likely to be misled by ill-intending people.
