Over Two-dozen Children Succumbs to Encephalitis in Bihar

More than 25 children have died of suspected encephalitis and many affected children have been battling for survival in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district for the past few days //.

The district administration has sounded a high alert to check the spread of the killer disease. The children reported sudden light fever in the early morning, which was followed by bouts of unconsciousness and convulsion leading to their death.

Civil surgeon Ramnagina Prasad Singh confirmed the deaths of the children due to suspected encephalitis.

Unofficial figures say the number of children to have died of the mosquito-borne disease was high. The viral infection leads to inflammation of the brain.

Muzaffarpur-based S.K. Medical College and Hospital superintendent G.K. Thakur said he had urged health experts in Pune to visit Muzaffarpur to study the cause of spread of the disease and direct district officials on preventive measures.
