Indian schoolchildren wearing protective masks stand in a queue outside a school in Bangalore on August 11, 2009. The number of people to die from swine flu in India rose to nine, health officials said, as the government called for calm and people flocked to public hospitals for tests. The latest to die of the (A)H1N1 virus were an aged lady in India's financial hub Mumbai, and an eight year-old girl in the western Indian city of Vadodara.
