Ballia Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr Jayant Kumar briefed the press, “The heat has increased. But there is no information of deaths due to heat stroke. On social media, I learnt that at the Ballia District Hospital, 34 deaths had happened in two days. On Thursday, 23 deaths happened and on Friday, 11 deaths happened. I then visited the district hospital and spoke to all doctors, including the Chief Medical Superintendent. It was found that most and almost all these deaths are of people aged above 60 years. And they were being treated and had undergone tests here.”
Additional arrangements being made
The CMO also said that admitted people were suffering from various illnesses and as elderly have lesser threshold; their bodies could not bear extreme heat. The Chief Medical Superintendent (CMS) Diwakar Singh stated that more fans, coolers and air conditioners have been arranged in the hospital to provide respite from heat. The hospital has been properly equipped to prevent the risk of heatstroke in patients. To better mitigate the situation, the number of doctors and paramedical staff has also been increased. CMS has also advised people to take precautionary majors to prevent heatstroke.
