The havoc of a mysterious disease has come to the fore in Sukma district of Chhattisgarh. In which during the last few months, there was a stir due to the death of more than 50 people. The case is of remote Regadgatta village in the district. According to local media reports, 61 people have lost their lives due to mysterious disease in Reggadgatta village during 6 months. However, the administration says that 50 to 52 people have died here in two years. At the same time, the families of those who lost their lives could not know how these people died.

The case of Reggadgatta village of Sukma
The most shocking thing is that in the village where more than 50 people died, there is a population of about 800 people. Due to the death of so many people in about 6 months due to the mysterious disease, panic has spread in the surrounding areas. The families did not know who killed them. According to the villagers, in this mysterious disease, they complain of swelling in the legs and body parts and heart palpitations. However, the reasons for how the people were dying could not be ascertained.

There was a stir in the health department due to the death figures
Health officials are constantly scrambling to find the disease. Health officials said that samples of sick people have been tested. The soil and water of the village are also being tested. Regadagatta is about 100 km from Sukma district headquarter and close to Odisha and Telangana border. Setting up of health camps during monsoon in this remote area is also a big challenge. This is the reason that for months the death of the patients went unnoticed until the local media persons got the news about their number.

What did the Sukma Collector say in the whole matter
At the same time, as soon as the matter came to light, the district headquarters was alerted two days ago. Sukma Collector Harris S has confirmed the deaths. Along with this, he said that due to this disease, complaints of swelling, vomiting and restlessness in the hands and feet of people have been detected. Initial reports of water and soil samples showed high iron content as well as higher fluoride content in the water of one of the two hand-pumps.

Question raised on hand pump water in investigation report
People of Regadagatta have been advised not to use water from these hand pumps. Harris said about 41 people have been brought to Sukma District Hospital. Fourteen of them have been diagnosed with kidney disease and are being treated. Health officials are doing regular follow-ups, he said, adding that a medical team has already reached the village to collect blood samples. Which are being sent to a laboratory in Nagpur.

health department on alert
Health department spokesperson Dr Subhash Mishra said that he suspected that the disease was caused by consumption of water with high fluoride and iron content. We are conducting tests to identify the exact cause of the disease. Reaching the village for health workers is not less than a big problem. The nearest block to this village is Konta, a Maoist hotspot about 25 km away.
