The 12-year-old Pathanathitta girl, who is being treated in a critical condition after being bitten by a street dog, should act to ensure competent treatment, and the government should shoulder the full expense of the treatment, the opposition leader has demanded in a letter to the chief minister.
Since two years ago, there have been more dog bites in the state from stray dogs.
The vaccine was effective earlier, therefore there were fewer deaths overall.
The first widespread reporting of events involving biters’ deaths began in 2020.
An urgent motion notice published on August 30 brought these issues to the Legislative Assembly’s attention.
The Chief Minister also promised the opposition that a committee of experts would be established to examine the efficacy of the rabies vaccine given out in the state.
If no further action was taken in this matter, the Leader of the Opposition urged immediate intervention in the letter.
For the past two years, dogs have not been sterilised.
The state does not also engage in the ABC system.
Local governments cannot accomplish this by using their own cash.
The opposition leader likewise requested that actions be made right now to recognise and address the issues.
The 12-year-old child is receiving treatment at the Kottayam Medical College Hospital after being bitten by a dog, and health minister Veena George has ordered him to receive professional care.
