Encephalitis Toll in North Bengal Reaches 119

The toll due to "different types of Encephalitis" in north Bengal rose to 119 today while no new cases were reported in the last 24 hours in the state.

"One fresh death was reported from Coochbehar district in north Bengal and no new cases were reported from anywhere in the state," West Bengal Health Services Director Biswaranjan Satpathy told PTI.

Taking into account the death of 20 persons from other states in north Bengal due to Encephalitis, the toll was 139 since January this year, Satpathy said.

Claiming that the situation in the seven districts of north Bengal was under control, the medical officer said there has been no trace of the Japanese Encephalitis (JE) virus here in the city.

"The situation in other parts of the state is under control," Satpathy said.
