    Viral strain linked to mystery fever

    Jamshedpur, Dec. 10: The district administration today rushed a team of doctors to the Cable Colony, where residents of a particular locality have been suffering from a mysterious fever.

    After conducting an examination and collecting blood samples, the doctors ruled out chikungunya, which had gripped the nation in 2006. Doctors believed it to be an extreme case of viral fever.

    The team of doctors comprised Jaya Moutra, C.B. Choudhary and Dhananjay Kumar. A team from the Indian Red Cross Society, East Singhbhum, also took part in the medical camp.

    Around 80 patients were examined today, but blood samples of only a handful were collected.

    The medical team examined the residents of Peepal Road, Neem Road, Tamarind Road and Sheesham Road ? all affected by the fever.

    ?We have examined the patients and have also distributed medicines to them. It seems to a case of viral fever causing severe joint pain. The patients have been suffering from a lot of pain for the past two weeks. Seasonal change and unclean surroundings could be reasons for the spread of the disease,? said Moutra.

    The blood samples will be studied to check the cause of the fever.

    ?I think we can safely rule out chikungunya. There is no evidence of red patches that is a symptom of the disease caused due to mosquito bites. Though, several residents have complained of red patches and rashes during the early days of the fever, it could also be a side-effect of the medicines administered to them,? one of the doctors said.

    The medical team also discussed the fever and symptoms with local doctors. Those leading the team suggested that patients should change the medicines that have already been prescribed.

    Bijay Singh, the president of IRCS, claimed that heaps of garbage spread across the region are the main cause for the epidemic fever.\Now, the district administration is expected to start a cleanliness drive in the area.

    Meanwhile, a team from the Indian Medical Association (IMA), Jamshedpur chapter, organised a medical camp at Bhilaipahari and Rugridih after receiving directives from the district administration.

    ?We examined around 150 patients of both the villages. Due to shortage of doctors, we were directed to organise the camp in the affected areas only,? said Mritunjay Singh, the general secretary of IMA.

    The district administration has found 20 patients suffering from cerebral malaria in these villages. Earlier, on Monday, two siblings lost died after falling prey to the disease.
