New Delhi: 28th October 2011
The encephalitis dance of death in eastern Uttar Pradesh and Bihar’s bordering districts looks set to cross all previous records this year. With 2-3 weeks still left in the ‘season’, the country-wide death toll is nearing the 1,000-mark, of which UP itself has a staggering toll of nearly 500. More than 80% of those killed are children below 10 years belonging to poor families from the rural hinterland.
