HUMLA, June 14: Locals at Galfagad at Adanchuli Rural Municipality-2 in Humla district have been suffering from viral fever for some days now. The cases of viral fever are on the rise in the locality.
The lack of health facilities in the locality having 30 households has made people suffering from high fever and their families gravely worried. The nearest health post is an hour of walking distance.
Singha Bhandari, a local, grieved that locals taken ill with minor infections or general health issues are bereft of timely medical attention in lack of health post in their locality.
According to him, a more worrying factor is the lack of essential and basic medicines against diarrhea, fever, acidity, among others, in every household due to which providing medical treatment to children and elderly persons already taken ill becomes further difficult and they may have to experience further aggravation of their ailment.
Rural Municipality health coordinator Hansa Mahatara shared that he was unaware of any cases of viral fever in Galfagad village.
If they are notified of the infection, they are ready to provide medical intervention, assured Mahatara.
