6 more die of Hepatitis-B in Modasa

The outbreak of Hepatitis B in the Sabarkantha district of Gujarat appears to be worsening with 6 more people having lost their lives in Modasa.

And 26 fresh cases were reported on Friday. Total number of deaths in Sabarkantha has now gone up to 40.

More cases are being reported from the neighbouring areas. An FIR has been filed against doctors who have been accused of re-using infected needles and causing the outbreak.
