As of today, December 7, a new disease has been reported that is affecting the population of Southeast India and its origin and type of disease are unknown. So far, more than 300 people have come to the hospital to be treated and according to the report, only one individual has died according to information from local officials investigating the cases.
Reporting characteristics of this disease that has so far affected patients in the city of Eluru, in Andhra Pradesh state, are a variety of symptoms including seizures, loss of consciousness and nausea over the weekend. So said Dolla Joshi Roy, a watchdog for the West Godavari district in Eluru.
It seems that things are not quite right in India as this occurs simultaneously with the fight against the covid-19 pandemic, with the second highest number of infections in the world. Andhra Pradesh is one of the worst affected states and currently has more than 800,000 confirmed cases.
All the patients tested negative for covid-19 and about 180 patients have been discharged, while the rest are "stable." The patient who died had reported symptoms similar to the others. But then he had a fatal but unrelated cardiac arrest
These were the words of the local authorities
A note published by the Andhra Pradesh Health Department said that initial blood tests did not find any evidence of a viral infection.
Authorities are now testing water samples at Eluru for contamination, after it was discovered that all the patients received their water from a common source. Samples were collected from 57,863 households and sent to a forensic laboratory.
