      Comment: Bihar has reported 207 total AES deaths (153 in Muzaffarpur & 54 in other districts), Assam has increased the number of JE deaths to 142 (Aug 9) and AES to 139 (July 20) for a total of 281. There have also been reports of 2 deaths each in Jharkhand, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Nagaland and 1 in Uttarakhand. Combined, this brings the number of fatalities so far this year to 1,280 (+369 in the past week). Uttar Pradesh: All 24 JE fatalities are reported from Bijnor district. AES fatalities from Bahraich (1) and Sultanpur (411). I am doubtful that these numbers are correct.- Ro

              Japanese Encephalitis Toll Climbs To 146 In Assam

              Mukut Das
              Updated: 16th August 2019 - 19:27:04 PM

              The Japanese Encephalitis death toll in Assam rose to 146 with one more case reported from western Assam’s Dhubri district according to National Health Mission (NHM) bulletin in Guwahati. A total of four positive JE cases were reported in the state on August 16th, 2019. A total of 614 positive JE cases have been reported so far according to the official data. On August 14th, 2019, a death case was reported from Barak Valley’s Cachar district.

              News reports for the last few weeks have been omitting the full picture by not reporting on AES cases & deaths in Assam. To July 20, JE confirmed cases made up only 28% of the total AES (459 JE from 1,637 total AES) caseload and constituted only 45% of the fatalities (104 JE from 231 total AES). Since then, 155 additional confirmed cases of JE have been reported with 42 fatalities. Statistically, an additional 398 AES cases with 51 fatalities may have occurred in the same period. My estimate of the true AES toll in the state is around 2,190 cases with 324 fatalities. - Ro
