However, Alok Dewan, in-charge of Kumarghat Hospital not to be worried as there are adequate preparations to prevent any major outbreak of the disease and regular health camps are being organised in the affected areas.

In Kanchanpur the water supply system got damaged as a newly constructed boundary wall Kanchanpur Sub-divisional Hospital collapsed on the reservoir pipe of the Water treatment Plant situated adjacent to the hospital. This has forced the people to depend on water of nearby pond, lake and rivers. Though the work to restore water supply system started it will take few more days and an alternative arrangement became necessary.
