Health Ministry's interventions helped bring down AES mortality rate in Bihar: Vardhan

@MoHFW_INDIA
Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has said, the Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) mortality rate has come down significantly in Bihar due to the strategic interventions made by the Ministry. 

Dr Harsh Vardhan reviewed the status of AES cases of Bihar with senior officials. An official release said, in the past forty-eight hours, there have been only five AES related admissions at Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital (SKMCH) at Muzaffarpur.

The Minister said round the clock point-of-care testing facility has been set up at the hospital to monitor vital parameters of the children. 

He said the facility is being further strengthened by deployment of biochemist and technicians from the Central government hospitals.

Dr Harsh Vardhan said the fifteen-member Central team of doctors and para-medics providing medical care will be replaced by a team with similar strength for further ten days ensuring continuity of care of admitted cases.  

The team will oversee and support the state government efforts for management of AES cases at SKMCH.
