A massive outbreak of diarrhoea has cost almost 100 people their lives in some villages in the district of Haryana, Panchkula.
The first case in the Abheypur region of Panchkula was reported on Wednesday, according to an article by India Today.
Nearly a hundred persons were admitted, however, to the public medical camps in the areas concerned and in the Panchkula Civil Hospital until Thursday, the Indian Express report indicated. In the paediatric wing of the civil hospital there are 46 children.
T is suspected of the reason behind the outbreak being the consumption of contaminated water. The stubs taken from the patients showed that cholera was confirmed.
After the cases began to rise, Dr Mukta Kumar, Panchkula CMO, visited this website on Thursday, saying that health conditions were extremely poor, especially in Abheypur.
“The water supply tank is located next to the open sewer and carries all house releases. This dirty water was constantly inhaled, which could have led to this outbreak of cholera, “the daily quotation from the Panchkula CMO is.
The family members of the deceased have, in the meantime, alleged negligence by doctors.
But the Panchkula CMO said the doctor overnight supervised the child and then released it. On the other hand, the Department of Public Health has rejected any liability and said that the inspection of the site had started.
