During the interrogation of the employees, it was found that the items used daily in the hospital have been kept in the ward. The key remains with the store manager.

The outbreak of dengue is increasing in the district, if the treatment of dengue patients is being recruited and treated in the normal children’s world, then it is wrong. But the health department remains indifferent. In the Raja Pratap Bahadur Hospital of Medical College, there is a lock hanging in the ward of 10 beds made for dengue. Infected patients are being treated by being admitted to the children’s ward, while within 24 hours, 11 dengue positive in the district and a child suffering from encephalitis have been found in the investigation conducted in KGAMU. Due to administrative negligence, there is water logging in many places in the city, due to stagnant rainwater, dengue mosquitoes are flourishing along with malaria. Mosquitoes are spreading infected diseases by stinging people even at night and day. Medicine is being sprayed not only around the house of dengue-positive patients, if dengue patients are being admitted and treated in the general or children’s board, then it is wrong. The reply will be sought from CAMAS, will get the matter investigated, and action will be taken on those responsible -Dr. CP Sharma ACAMO.
