Zirakpur, September 19
Fifty houses in Dhakoli were surveyed today in which 16 patients complained of diarrhoea-like symptoms. Five of them have been admitted to the Community Health Centre.
Five other persons had mild symptoms.
“The blood and stool test reports will be received tomorrow. The report of water samples will also be available tomorrow. Most of the cases are being found in Sukhna Colony in Dhakoli,” said Dr Adarshpal Kaur, Mohali Civil Surgeon. It has been six days since people started complaining of diarrhoea-like symptoms in Peer Muchalla and then in Dhakoli, but still new cases are being reported from the area every day.
Contamination of water due to sewage and waterlogging in the area is said to be the main cause of the outbreak.
Residents living in the vicinity of the Municipal Council office here alleged that it had been close to eight days that they were getting dirty water in taps. “Daily, four-five persons complaining of fever, abdominal pain from this locality visit Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32; Dera Bassi and Dhakoli hospitals,” said Yamin Malik, a Bishanpura resident.
