Case of Kala Azar reported at Thrissur MCH

Thrissur: A case of Kala Azar, an infectious disease spread by sandflies and rarely seen in the state, was reported at the Medical College Hospital in Thrissur on Tuesday.

A 40-year-old man from Mollorkkara in Thrissur was detected with the infectious disease.

Kala Azar or Black Fever is usually seen only in the northern states. Several instances were reported in the state too over the past years.

According to WHO report, as many as 50,000 people are affected by this disease across the world.

The disease, which had been eradicated in India in the late 1950s, resurfaced after 20 years and by the late 80s manifested again as a major public health problem.
