Three out of the 20 have shown symptoms similar to that of the H1N1 influenza,Delhi Health Minister Kiran Walia has said.
While one child has been admitted to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital in West Delhi,the Haryana government is still trying to track down the other two,who live in Gurgaon.

Walia said the Health department is in touch with the Haryana government and with airport authorities to find out the whereabouts of all those who had travelled with the students.
This is a matter of concern. If these children are not traced quickly,the infection might spread. We are speaking to airport authorities to get flight details so that we can quarantine passengers who travelled with these children, said Walia.
Five persons,including the Venkateshwara student,have been admitted in city hospitals with flu-like symptoms.
Their samples have been sent to the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD).
