Due to govt efforts, encephalitis cases have declined in eastern UP: Yogi Adityanath

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday claimed that due to the efforts of the state government, encephalitis cases had drastically declined in eastern part of the state.

"For the last 40 years, every year in August around 500-600 children were admitted to BRD medical college of Gorakhpur (for encephalitis treatment) but this year, only 86 children were admitted," the chief minister said.

Addressing a gathering on the launch of measles, rubella vaccination campaign, which will continue for five weeks, Adityanath said encephalitis claimed between 125-150 lives in August every year.
