Having sneezing and cold, the governor Singh has gone to state-run Sawai Man Singh Hospital in Jaipur on Sunday evening for check-up. The hospital diagnosed him with swine flu (H1N1). Without taking any risk, Singh flew to Delhi Apollo hospital for treatment.

A fresh check-up at Delhi’s premier hospital found no H1N1. “The Governor who is used to getting his health check-up in Delhi rushed to Apollo hospital there and his H1N1 test was found negative, Raj Bhawan PRO Lokesh Chandra Sharma told reporters.

“The Governor is not suffering from swine flu, and got a minor check-up and treatment for seasonal disease. He will go to Aligarh from Delhi on Tuesday, and attend the marriage of his granddaughter Poornima Singh,” the PRO added.
