Chikungunya cases on the rise in state 17.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The dangerous dengue may have disappeared post-rain, but another viral fever had taken its place in the state, and is spreading rapidly. The outbreak of Chikungunya is so alarming that the state has recorded nearly half of the total cases of the infection in the country. With the ceasing of rain and the sudden plunge in temperatures, Chikungunya has infected 30,600 people in the state in December, while the numbers were 20,000 the previous month. The virus has affected 60,200 people across the country. "Weve been seeing four to five cases a day. They come with severe forms of arthritis," said Dr Pankaj Singhai, senior consultant, internal medicine, Manipal Hospital, adding that there are also patients with muscle inflammation. Dr Singhai said an increase in Chikungunya cases post-rain has become a trend each year. He said rampant garbage dumping in the city provides the ideal breeding ground for the virus. "Vector-borne diseases have subsided in the state," said Dr Prakash Kumar, deputy director, ...

Low turnout greets Modi in Gujarat's Chalala 27.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The ground should have been overflowing with people, especially when a prime minister - that too, a PM like Narendra Modi - came to address the rally. Sadly, it was not even half full. And that was the general observation of those in the crowd, as they walked out of the Gayatri Mandir Ground near Chalala in Dhari of the Patel-dominated Amreli district of Saurashtra. Though not sparse, the number of empty chairs at the venue could make any candidate sweat. Especially when the crowd was from five different constituencies of the district. "The Patels were generally absent and Kolis were here in huge numbers," said Balubhai of Chalala village. "The other problem is that this entire belt of Rajula-Dhari is under the grip of chikungunya and dengue. This could also be the reason for the low turnout," he said. Just outside the venue, three-four youngsters passed by, mumbling Jai Sardar among themselves, throwing a glance at the rally ground. Modi undeterred The prime minister landed at Chalala on Monday to ...

Tribune News Service Ludhiana, November 22 Although there is a nip in the air, but the cases of dengue and chikungnya are still being reported every day. As many as 10 dengue cases were confirmed today. The total number of patients affected with dengue this year has risen to 1,017. The Health Department has asked city residents to be careful of mosquitoes and take preventive measures to prevent vector-borne diseases. District epidemologist, Dr Ramesh, said although there was a chill in the air after the recent rainfall, with ensuing sunny days the temperature had gone up a little bit, which in turn had provided ample conditions for breeding of mosquitoes. “Cases of dengue and chikungunya are still being detected. Although their number has gone down, they have not stopped altogether. We are hopeful that with the start of next month cases of dengue will stop coming,” he added.

Bengaluru lad's initiative provides ray of hope for remote Hussainpura 21.11.2017
Bengaluru: Natives of Hussainpura village of Pavagada taluk in Tumakuru district no longer need to cross the Andhra Pradesh border daily to fetch drinking water. They also need not travel 38 kilometres through forest areas to the nearest hospital for any medical emergency, after a Primary Health Centre was set up within the remote village itself. All this happened thanks to "Operation Blue Water," a social initiative led by Rahul Prasad, a city youngster and social activist who converged passion and practical knowledge he attained at college to better hundreds of lives at the village. He is now training villagers to be self-sustainable and self-helping. In a chat with Deccan Chronicle Rahul said, "The geometric placement of the village at the remote Karnataka-Andhra border had been the major hindrance towards any welfare activity in the village for the past ten to fifteen years. Taking people into confidence and making them aware of the fact that they need to change towards better was a ...
