A 3-member team from the Health department visited the village and collected samples from the water sources used by the villagers for consumption. They also met the patients in the CHC and enquired about their condition.

The Health team told the media that consumption of polluted and untreated water might be the cause of outbreak of diarrhoea in the village. However, the exact cause of the disease would be known after getting the test report of the water from the laboratory, they added.
