The death toll from the outbreak of an unknown disease that appeared in Tanjakot Rural Municipality of Humla about 3 weeks ago has reached 10, with one more fatality reported today 30 Apr 2019, as health authorities scramble to identify and contain the outbreak. Today 30 Apr 2019, 62-year-old PB of Bhadaura in Tajakot succumbed to the disease. In the wake of the outbreak, 2 separate teams of health workers including experts from Mugu and Surkhet had reached Tajakot yesterday 29 Apr 2019. While the provincial government, in coordination with the federal government, sent a team led by Dr. KN Poudel with necessary medicines to the outbreak-hit village via a Nepal Army chopper, another team of health workers led by Dr. Manoj Timalsina from Ratamata Primary Health Centre of Mugu reached the village yesterday 29 Apr 2019 on foot. While the Dr. Poudel-led team has been examining patients after setting up a camp at Bhaisamajh Community Health Unit, the Dr. Timilsina-led team is treating patients from Maila Health Post. The teams are said to have examined more than 200 patients since yesterday 29 Apr 2019 in the village. Though the doctors, on the basis of the symptoms, suspect the outbreak to be seasonal common cold and cough, they said they couldn’t say anything for sure until the test report. "We can say for sure what the cause of deaths is only after we return to Surkhet with samples of patients’ spittle respiratory samples? and test it in the laboratory," said the leader of the team, Dr. KN Poudel, adding that the spittle samples would be sent to Surkhet on Tuesday 30 Apr 2019, and it may take 3-4 days for the results to arrive.
