The number of child deaths due to unknown fever is increasing in North Bengal. On the same day, three children died at North Bengal Medical College. The recent incident has created an atmosphere of panic in North Bengal. However, doctors said, there is no reason to be afraid.
According to hospital sources, Sahidul Haque, 11, of Siliguri, Ayan Biswas, a resident of Dhupguri, and Nikhat Parveen, a resident of Phulbari, were among the three dead. According to the hospital, all of them had other symptoms besides fever and shortness of breath. It is learned that 6-month-old baby Nikhat Parveen’s corona was examined. But the corona report is negative. The question is, what could be the cause of death of that child. According to hospital sources, there are still 60 children admitted in the children’s department of North Bengal Medical College and Hospital. Many of them have symptoms of fever and shortness of breath. It is learned that the three children died from noon on Saturday to noon on Sunday.
Dr Madhumita Nandi, head of the children’s department at the Medical College Hospital, said the children did not die of fever, cold or cough. Some of those who died had cerebral palsy, some had meningitis and some had sepsis. It may be mentioned that 6 children have died in North Bengal in the last 4 days.
