OP Jaisha, Indian Olympic athlete who was in news recently for allegations of neglected by Indian Sports officials have been tested positive for H1N1 virus also known as Swine flu.
She has been admitted to a hospital in Bengaluru and is under observation.
Jaisha’s roommate in Rio, Sudha Singh, had also been diagnosed with H1N1 earlier this week. Doctors also said that those who have stayed with her were also showing symptoms of the virus.
Sudha was also tested for Zika as a precautionary measure as she had traveled to Brazil which has felt the impact of that virus.
When she arrived from Rio, Sudha was undergoing treatment and medication for suspected Zika virus.
