Health deteriorated shortly after drinking contaminated water
It is worth mentioning that in front of Maneka Nursing Home on Binauli Road in Sardhana, there is a tube well of the municipality, from which water is supplied to Mohalla Mandi Chamaran. On Monday morning, when people in the area drank the water that reached their homes, after some time their health started deteriorating. Within a short time, along with vomiting, diarrhea, pain in the stomach started. There was a stir among the families of those who fell ill after drinking the contaminated water. People who fell ill after experiencing vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain were immediately admitted to various hospitals in the city. Seeing the condition of many of them critical, they were referred to Meerut.
SDM Satyaprakash and Tehsildar Natwar Singh met the local people and helped them with taking information. Mohalla residents say that two days ago, white foam was coming in the water of the tank. Even after the complaint, the municipal administration did not take the matter seriously. Due to which people have come under the grip of disease.
Hospital negligence also came to the fore
The number of patients is increasing continuously for the last two days. Earlier on Monday, dozens of people were admitted to various hospitals here and now on Tuesday also the process of people getting sick continued continuously. 22 patients reached the government hospital in Sardhana, apart from this, people from many families took their patients to private hospitals. On the second day also, the panic spread among the people as people fell ill. The situation of negligence in the government hospital of Sardhana is that when the condition of many children deteriorated here, they were referred to the district hospital, but there was no arrangement for an ambulance for hours. During this, the drip of a sick girl stopped, then due to the negligence of the doctors, she remained closed for almost two hours. The relatives of the sick created a ruckus and after that they apprised the Sardhana MLA Atul Pradhan about the negligence of the doctors of the government hospital.
Sardhana MLA is monitoring himself
On the complaint of family members, Sardhana MLA Atul Pradhan reached CHC, he spoke to SDM Satyaprakash, after which Sardhana SDM and Tehsildar Narwar Singh reached Government Hospital and inquired about the matter. The MLA assured that now he will keep an eye on the staff here, if any lapse is found, action will be taken against him. He told that now there will be 2 ambulances at Sardhana CHC for emergency. Patients who are admitted in private hospitals will not have to pay their expenses. The Chief Medical Officer has also been informed in this regard. However, in the afternoon, the team of CMO and Municipal Corporation had reached Sardhana and the samples of water from the tube wells were checked.
Water testing increased the problem
On Monday, on the orders of DM Deepak Meena, the municipality sent door to door water samples for testing. After the water test report came back to normal, the administration’s troubles have increased. The reason why people get sick so far remains a mystery. In the water test report, only the amount of chlorine was shown to be low, while no bacteria of any kind was found. Because of this the officials are confused. The Jal Nigam has also sent water samples from ponds near the locality for testing. People had to face a lot of trouble due to non-availability of water supply throughout the day in the city.
