Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has assured all support to Bihar government for the containment and management of the Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) cases.

He reviewed the situation with Health Minister of the state Mangal Pandey through Video Conferencing and took stock of the situation from the functionaries at grass-root level.

Minister of state for health, Ashwini Kumar Choubey was also present during the meeting.

Expressing concern over the deaths of children from AES, Dr Harsh Vardhan stated, it is painful to know that in a particular time during summer from 15 May to the month of June, there is always a hike in the rate of death of young children due to AES in Bihar.

He said, with proper interventions at multiple levels, these deaths can be prevented through timely care.
