Outbreak of ‘brain fever’ in India’s poorest state leaves 152 children dead


It’s believed 152 children have died following an outbreak of ‘brain fever’ in India.

The nation’s highest court has ordered an investigation following the large number of deaths from what is said to be a ‘completely curable’ disease.

Youngsters are dying from Acute Encephalitis Syndrome which occurs when the brain becomes inflamed.

The deadly outbreak has occurred in Muzaffarpur in the eastern state of Bihar, an area which is currently experiencing a deadly heatwave. Encephalitis is said to be triggered by dehydration and malnutrition and has also been linked to lychee fruit.
