Big achievement in combating AES this year: Sushil Kumar Modi

Patna, Jun 30 (UNI) Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Tuesday said that massive awareness drive and preparedness of the state government had yielded big achievement in combating Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) in Bihar this year, saving lives of children.
Mr Modi said here that massive awareness drive launched by the state government and concrete measures taken to combat AES, had yielded good results as only 12 children lost their lives this year from the disease as compared to 164 during the same period last year. Altogether 653 children suffering with AES, were admitted to Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital(SKMCH) last year while only 95 cases were admitted to SKMCH this year during the same period, he added.
Deputy Chief Minister said that Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) Hospital was constructed
with investment of Rs 72 Crores this year in the premises of SKMCH in record time. The 100 bed capacity PICU Hospital had helped immensely in treatment of AES cases this year, he added.
Mr Modi said that state government had made available 406 Ambulances in districts of North Bihar, found to be affected with AES last year. It helped in bringing sick children to Hospitals without losing much time, he stated.
Deputy Chief Minister said that Socio Economic survey was conducted in areas affected with AES last year. A number of steps were taken to improve the condition of poor families as most of the AES cases were received from this section, he further said, adding that adequate number of doctors and para medical staff were also deputed in government hospitals besides essential medicines for treatment of AES cases and all these steps helped in combating the AES cases to a great extent.
