Hospitals across the city have started seeing a spurt in the number of gastroenteritis cases. It is mostly from the pockets where the urban poor reside, explain doctors. On average, hospitals are seeing 15-20 cases in their out-patient departments. City doctors warn that hygiene be given prime importance while consuming food this season as the risk of gastroenteritis (stomach flu) is high. Soaring temperatures have led to an increase in the number of cases. While the soaring temperatures push people to drink a good amount of water, consumption of pure water is important, says doctors. Dr Ansar Ahmed, medical superintendent, Epidemic Diseases Hospital (Isolation Hospital), said that the hospital has seen 160 cases of acute gastroenteritis in April alone.

In ice samples collected by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), 96 per cent of the samples collected across the city have been declared as contaminated, with 75 per cent samples detected with E. coli (sewage mixed with water), the bacteria which causes illnesses like diarrhoea and typhiod.
