Failures of government: No ICU facility: as per the reports, there is no ICU for the patients in Eluru.
The government has to maintain the ICU beds and hospitals. There is no Neuro physician and no child specialist to take care of patients further.
Are we not consuming clean water?
As per the reports, the water in many places in India has been getting polluted because of the factories, and the waste release, into the water. So the water is not clean in all the places in India.
Excessive chlorine leads to corrosion of the pipes of the water supply, which leads to lead corrosion in the pipe.
Pesticides usage also should be monitored. Symptoms are acute poisoning and long .
