Over 50 children suffer allergic reaction to medicine overdose in Nagpur

Over fifty children suffered allergic reactions to a medicine administered to them during a malnutrition drive by state health authorities in Nagpur.

Nagpur, May 9 : Over fifty children suffered allergic reactions to a medicine administered to them during a malnutrition drive by state health authorities in Nagpur.

The affected children were rushed to Mayo hospital after several of them complained of headache, vomiting and even allergic reactions on their skin.

The state health authorities had administered Vitamin A to children in Indiranagar locality of the city during a recent drive against malnutrition.

"Due to an overdose of the medicine the children have been complaining about headaches and vomiting since the morning. And, some of them are also suffering from dehydration. About 50 children of that village have been admitted to the hospital and doctors are providing necessary medication to the children," said Dr. Milind Mane at Mayo Hospital on Wednesday.

Tense parents sat with their children on the floor as the hospital ran short of beds. They said the municipal medical authorities had been careless in administering the medicine to their children.

"Children have been vomiting since the morning. It was the doctors who administered the medicine to these children," said Tulsibai Raut, an anxious mother.

While authorities say the condition of the children was now stable, a probe has been ordered into the incident.
