Assam’s Malaria Death Toll Rises To 75, More People Affecte

Malaria has claimed 75 lives in Assam and the health authorities said that more than 300,000 people are affected by the epidemic//.

"So far 75 people have died of cerebral malaria since the disease struck in the state in the beginning of April," Assam Health Minister Bhumidhar Barman told IANS.

Payeng's health condition deteriorated as the priest failed in his attempt at curing the 70-year-old tribal. Doctors at the hospital where Payeng was later shifted to said his condition is critical.

"The delay in bringing a person to the hospital complicates the illness and is one of the reasons for the fatalities."

Superstitious beliefs, black magic and demonology are integral to tribal custom in parts of Assam, Tripura and other northeast states. "Our health workers are now working overtime in spreading awareness in rural areas not to be wooed by quacks or sorcerers, and
