After short gap, jaundice has again gripped Balangir town. Sources said as many as 24 people in Sudpada area under the Balangir Municipality are affected with the disease and admitted at the District Headquarters Hospital (DHH) till Saturday evening. “The situation is under control. Jaundice broke out there due to consumption of contaminated pipe water supplied to the area, said Balangir CDMO Dr RN Tripathy, adding “We have informed district Collector M Muthukumar about this and requested him to supply water through tanker in that area”. Besides, several teams are carrying out door to door survey in that area and sensitising people to drink safe water, added the CDMO.
