Eluru: A mysterious disease that began spreading in Andhra Pradesh’s Eluru claimed one life on Sunday even as about 292 fell sick.

Over 140 of the patients have returned home after treatment at hospital while the condition of others was stable, medical and health officials in West Godavari district said.

It is uncertain as to what caused the disease that suddenly made people fall unconscious after suffering from symptoms of fits and nausea.

On Sunday morning, a 45-year-old man who was admitted to the government general hospital in Vijayawada with symptoms of nausea and epilepsy died in the evening.

Special teams of doctors have been rushed to Eluru to treat the patients while a house-to-house survey has been undertaken to identify prospective patients.

State Health Commissioner Katamaneni Bhaskar also reached the place to take stock of the situation and monitor the treatment.

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has scheduled a visit to Eluru on Monday to visit the patients in the GGH and later hold a review meeting with the West Godavari district officials.

Deputy Chief Minister (Health) A K K Srinivas (Nani), who represents Eluru, said tests established that water contamination was not the cause of the unknown disease.

Nani visited the hospital again on Sunday and reviewed the situation and said there was no need to panic.

“Most of the victims have recovered and others are stable. We have readied 50 beds in the GGH in Vijayawada to shift patients, if required. Our medical teams are attending to every patient,” the Deputy Chief Minister said.
