Dr Jyoti Bhuyan, Joint Director, Health and Family Welfare Department, stated that many of these patients were responding well to medicines and recovering. She pointed out that the recovery of patients, who earlier received JE vaccines, has been quick. It has also been noticed that the surroundings in which the affected patients live are not hygienic at all, Dr Bhuyan added.

With the help of civic bodies, panchayats, Public Health Engineering Department, etc., precautionary measures are being taken to prevent the further spread of the disease. Continuous awareness drives are being conducted among the masses, she added. At present, the Tinsukia Civil Hospital is well equipped to detect Japanese Encephalitis, officials said.

The student body also demanded the resignation of Health Minister Dr Nazrul Islam for his �total failure to serve the people of the State.�
