As the district Health Department has issued an advisory regarding the spread of swine flu in the district, the isolation ward meant for H1N1 patients is lying locked at the Civil Hospital.

A senior official at the Civil Hospital said swine flu patients needed ventilation support and ventilators were not available at the hospital.
