Jaundice spread in silver city Cuttack .  Cuttack Collector NC Mishra says 76 jaundice patients have been detected; Ward no 8, 9, 10 are hit by the water-borne disease .  Special arrangements hav been made at SCB hospital and City hospital for treatment of #jaundice patients, informs Cuttack Collector.

Cuttack collector further says jaundice spread in the area as piped water has been contaminated . Every year hundreds of people get infected with this water borne disease and over last four years 10 persons have succumbed to this disease but every year the problem remains to be the same.

Last year the situation took the form of an epidemic in Jobra, Kesharpur area of the city and proved to be a tough task on the part of the administration to deal with. For the last some years jaundice has been a pain in the neck for this part of twin city which is more crippled by old outdated public water supply system, distorted and chocked drainage system, encroachment along drains, leakage of water pipelines and consequent infection.
