          Prolly not enough health worckers to check the health of villagers. Few thermometers and they dont work. People being checked are asked to come back. Culling is still going on.



          Berdflu in the affected areas of the health check started

          Feb 08, 12:38 am
          Dinhata (Kucbihar):
          Dinhata many areas of the city include the bird flu affected areas as those areas were declared in Kalinga, but did not work. People in the areas of health check for an important meeting was sent to health workers. In fact, bird flu in the affected areas to check the health of the people of this important objective. Charges that include the city in these villages have received the news of the death of the chickens. But still the job of killing poultry in villages of Kalinga means work is not done. Though officially the process of Kalinga"culling" in the affected areas has been concluded. Even after the establishment of the goose and chicken is in the villages. People here to check the health of health workers have accused the health workers of 25 to 30 members of a team of only two to three thermometer have been given. Most thermometers are bad in this too. That a bird flu in humans, the bacteria from entering her first symptom is a fever thermometer, but the Health Department from bad problem to have. The health workers only talking to people have to come back. The situation is such that given by the Government to remove the thermometer by the Government health workers were given the pen does not work.

          The health workers spend their money Paket government bought the pen has to do the work. In this context, a number Dinhata Block Primary Health Center, Dr. Abhijit Das, the officer said that the thermometer from falling short of funds to buy Antaid health workers has been directed. Health officials said the health department of the total 131 blocks in the team to the affected area three kilometers between the 94, the remaining three to ten kilometers between the 37 teams in the work of the health check has been imposed. Block Dinhata one, two and Broatiabadhi - two and a Gram Panchayat is also involved. However, with the thermometer health workers is problematic. http://66.102.1.101/translate_c?hl=e...Plqwj-3KbBYbXA
