Undiagnosed disease – India
An undiagnosed disease in the Mulugu district saw 6 people dead in a period of 20 days. So far, 72 people have undergone medical tests. The disease is spreading rapidly, with symptoms as fever and bloating. Panicked people are leaving the village of Muppanapalli in the Kannai Goodem zone of Mulugu district.
It is not clear if this disease is related to other illnesses occurring in the state. A contaminated water supply is suspected and being investigated.
Even with substantial efforts by the Indian and state governments, about 70 million people are affected yearly by undiagnosed diseases in India.
Updates will follow as we learn more.
