Health and Family Welfare Minister Sivananda Patil has said that action plan is being prepared to ensure permanent humanitarian disorders in Malenadu districts.
“We have to arrange for the control and management of mangoes, including vaccination from time to time in Shimoga, Chikmagalur, Udupi and Uttara Kannada districts,” he told.
“Monkey disease has not been seen in some panchayats in Aralgodu and suburbs in the Sagar taluk. Thus, this part was not vaccinated. But now this part of the mangrove disease has worsened and more deaths have occurred. The government will take action based on the report of experts already formed, “he said.
“Rs 5 crores for effective treatment of manganese vaccine Rs 10 crores has been allocated for the purpose of controlling monkey disease, “he said. The delegation headed by Omar MLA H Halappa visited CM HD Kumaraswamy on Friday to seek adequate compensation for mangrove disease, adequate treatment and the deceased families responsible for the deaths of many people in the Araragodu panchayat area.
The delegation also met the chief secretary TM Vijayabhaskar separately. Vijayalakshar decided to convene a meeting of concerned officials on Monday for the mangal control and management as requested by the delegation. Speaking at a press conference after the meeting, MLA Halappa said, “Even though Dengue has been under control, 15 people have died since December 17. More than 30 patients are being treated in hospitals. Small farmers and laborers are more likely to suffer from illness and should be given relief to their family dependents, “he insisted on the government. Infection detection is still dependent on Manipal and Pune laboratories. There is a week waiting for the report to be installed in the ocean. Some people are lobbying to set up this laboratory in Shimoga, but it should not be allowed”, he said.
