PIROJPUR: Diarrhoea cases are on rise in different upazilas of the district. A total of 217 diarrhoea patients have been admitted to Bhandaria upazila. Of them, 45 were admitted in the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, deaths of two people from diarrhea have been recorded at Bhandaria upazila on Saturday.

The deceased are Mumtaj Begum, 45, a resident of Dakshin Bhandaria Mahalla under the upazila, and nine-month-old Zahid Hasan, son of Chenchri village under Kathalia upazila. Sources said as many as 729 patients received treatment at the hospital in one month after diarrhoea infection.

The authorities concerned are struggling to provide medical services to the patients. Upazila health and family planning officer Dr Nani Gopal Roy said the prime reason behind this sudden surge in the disease is the change of environment. He urged everyone to take healthy food and follow safety measures.
