The maximum number of death is reported from Muzaffarpur and it is declared to be the prone area of the disease.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was reviewed the situation and asked proper medical care to be given for the affected people. Nitish Kumar said, “Experts have been asked to monitor the situation and also launch an awareness drive to inform people about the symptoms of the disease in the affected areas. People should not let their children sleep on an empty stomach”, The health department said more children lost their lives due to hypoglycemia related disease – low level blood sugar. Then the government is distributed ORS packets in the affected area. However media reports said around 100 new cases are admitted at Sreekrishna Medical College and the situation is worse than the government’s claims.
