Seated beside Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan and MoS Health Ashwini Kumar Choubey in the meeting that took place on Sunday, Pandey asked, “How many wickets have fallen?”

 

Someone replied, “Four wickets down.” On Sunday, India registered a thumping victory against Pakistan by 89 runs at Old Trafford stadium in Manchester.

In Muzaffarpur, death toll due to encephalitis mounted to 104 on Monday, officials said. According to official data, over 80 children have died in Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital (SKMCH), while 17 have lost their lives in Kejriwal hospital in the city.

Many families of those admitted have alleged irregularities and lack of medical facilities at the government-run institutions. Minister Vardhan also had to face public outrage during his visit to SKMCH on Sunday.
