Event details

For the first time in five years, chicken pox is reported to have claimed the life of a child in Navi Mumbai. Arohi Patil (6), from Gothavali village in Rabale, succumbed to the disease on Tuesday. "The child was suffering from chicken pox for more than a week and was being treated in a private hospital. She was brought to NMMC Hospital in Vashi at around 8.30 p.m. on Tuesday but was declared dead on admission. We have conducted a post-mortem and as per protocol, sent her internal organs for tests to JJ Hospital. We are awaiting the reports," NMMC Health Officer Dayanand Katke said. Arohi was being treated at Kavita clinic in Gothavali village. At around 7 p.m. On Tuesday , she was taken to Gavali hospital in Rabale and from there to the NMMC Hospital hospital after her condition worsened, said a police officer from the Rabale police station. "We have registered a case of accidental death and are investigating," Senior Police Inspector Dinkar Mohite from Rabale police station said. According to Mr. Katke, the child suffered a secondary infection caused by the varicella zoster virus. "A secondary infection usually converts to pneumonia. The reports will tell us what exactly had happened in this case," Mr. Katke said. "We haven’t found any epidemic in Gothavali area and since the family is not available (they have gone to their village for the last rites), we haven’t found the source from where the girl got the virus," he said. According to a paediatrician from the NMMC Hospital, there has been a rise in cases of chicken pox after temperatures has risen. "We had many cases in March and this month too, have been getting many patients. It is difficult to say if any particular area has more cases as we get patients from Panvel as well as Uran. There is no epidemic but the chances of the virus spreading increases in summer," the doctor said. According to Mr. Katke, fever and body pain should not be taken lightly and one should visit the doctor at the earliest. "One should maintain cleanliness and avoid going out after contracting the disease so that it does not spread to others. There are vaccinations available in private clinics. It is not mandatory, and hence not available in government hospitals," Mr. Katke said.
