Seven persons, including six women, suspected to be affected with bird-flu were admitted in the isolation ward of the TB Hospital, Chief Medical Officer KK Vijayvargiya said on Wednesday.
"Their blood samples have been collected and were sent to Delhi for examination," he said.
"The suspected persons were referred from Mortakka in Khandwa district with suspected bird flu fever," he said, adding that they were examined by doctors and initial reports did not reveal anything suspicious.
Only after getting the report from the Delhi laboratory it can be confirmed whether they are affected with the bird flu or not, he said.
The suspected persons consumed a chicken dish few days back following which it was suspected that they are affected with the disease, he said.
They complained of vomiting, fever and pain in hands and legs, he added.
