Shillong, Aug 20 (PTI) The samples of eight more persons who complained of swine flu-like symptoms in Meghalaya have been sent for tests.

Of these two 19-year-old students had come in contact with the first flu patient in the state, while another one is suspected of contracting the virus from a patient, Director of Health Services (DHS) K H Lakiang said today.

The five others include a father-son duo who had arrived here from Coimbatore via Mumbai on August 17, besides a Civil Hospital ward boy and two students who came from Pune and Bangalore.

Five positive cases of the deadly virus have been detected in the state so far. All of them were being treated at the Civil Hospital here.
