Sources, however, said the programme couldn't be launched as most of the employees and officials of the department were assigned election duty during the period. "We are providing more beds in both the hospitals for treatment", he added.
"I shall discuss the management measures being recommended by the high-level expert team of the Centre, and support that can be extended through National Health Mission for health systems strengthening, and other ministries of the Central government, including the Ministry of Women and Child Development as part of the immediate and long term measures", Vardhan said. Everything is being made available from medicines to doctors. "We have even called doctors and nurses from AIIMS in Patna", Pandey said. "We are monitoring things regularly and trying to save our children", he said. Advertisement in newspapers, radio jingles, pamphlets and mic announcements are going to spread awareness regarding the disease. In this list Bihar's health secretary also got counted for supporting the argument of hypoglycemia.
Not all encephalopathic deaths are caused by the summer heat but the point is whether or not the nation is doing enough to create awareness in vulnerable sections of the population in rural areas where either AES or encephalitic diseases are routinely claiming young lives.
