Two children died from diarrhea, sewage water found in 17 sick homes
Ghaziabad. Two children died due to diarrheal outbreak in Economically Weaker Section (EWS) Fourth Yellow Colony of Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) Swaranjayantipuram. 17 more are sick, of which 10 are hospitalized. The reason for the spread of diarrhea is believed to be the supply of sewage water to the homes of these poor people. The health department took water samples from five houses, of which sewage was found in four. There are leaks in the sewerage and drinking water network, which the GDA has not corrected even after receiving the complaint.
Dr. Bhatosh Shankhdhar, CMO, said in the report sent to the DM that Anil’s five-year-old son Krishna was brought to the joint hospital after vomiting and diarrhoea. From there referral was made to the Higher Center but Anil took the child home, where he died. The family has a four-year-old daughter Tannu, while her mother had already died.
In the second case, Manohar’s seven-year-old daughter Anika also died at her home. Younger daughter Anshu was also admitted to United Hospital after vomiting and diarrhoea, from where she was discharged. Two real brothers, eight-year-old Sajan and four-year-old Sonu, who lived in the neighborhood, were admitted to MMG Hospital, discharged after their health improved. 10 children are admitted to United Hospital and MMG. The health department has given medicine to 20 people and 17 children. 36 people have been given ORS.
Diarrhea spread but still not cleared
Even after the spread of diarrhea in the slums of the poor, the GDA did not even clean it up. The health department team had to struggle to reach the homes of the dead children, while the officers reached the vehicle. There are potholes in the road and there is mud. There are piles of dirt everywhere. People said that many times they have complained about the mess, but the GDA officer did not even come to inspect any employee. Disease has spread here before.
Contaminated water supply even after the death of the children
Even after two children died of diarrhea, the supply of contaminated water in the Yellow District has not stopped. No officer or employee of GDA has even come to inquire about this matter. The OCM says that after the children died, the water was tested. Four out of five samples failed. His report is being forwarded to GDA officers.
