Another tribal infant dies in Attappady, toll reaches 16

Palakkad: Amidst concerns about the ill-health and malnutrition among tribal children, one more infant died in Attappady area here taking the toll to 16, health officials said Tuesday.

With the death of a one-day-old boy yesterday, the toll of the infants who have died since January has touched 16 in Attappady, one of the largest tribal settlements in the state.

The infant, born in Pudur village panchayat, was suffering from ailments due to malnutrition and died at a hospital in Thrissur, health officials said.

The underweight child was first admitted to a tribal super specialty hospital here but was later shifted to a Medical College in Thrissur for better medical care, they said.
