New Delhi: In a bid to prevent jaundice from spreading, the Delhi government has geared up and sent a delegation of doctors to Sonia Vihar, where scores of people are reported to be suffering from the disease. The doctors attended around 80 patients who were seriously affected from jaundice.

After Dainik Jagran reported about the rampant spread of the jaundice on April 14, the Delhi Jal Board officials took necessary action to prevent the disease.

The Jal Board officials distributed chlorine tablets and also gave ORS solution to the victims. Experts from the DJB took water samples from the colonies. In view of providing clean drinking water, water tankers were arranged for the residents of Sonia Vihar.

The cleaning staff of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) also reached the area and started sanitation of drains and roads.

A camp will be held on Saturday at Uttarakhand Ramleela Maidan and circular road for diagnosis of the disease and its treatment. MLA Mohan Singh Bisht also reached Sonia Vihar along with his team.
