Dysentery hits Galagedera

By L.B. Senaratne

Twenty children and a number of adults in Galagedera have been affected by dysentery and admitted to the Galagedera Hospital.

Some who are not satisfied with the treatment at the hospital have come to Kandy to seek treatment from private medical practitioners.

The staff at Galagedera Hospital and the District Medical Officer (DMO) who is in charge of the Hospital would not comment, except to say that there are persons under treatment including some in the children's ward.

The DMO told the Sunday Times to contact the Provincial Director of health whocould not, however, be contacted.

It is learnt that the attack of dysentery is said to be have been caused due to impurities in the water tank sited near the Galagedera Hospital and which also serves the public in the Galagedera area.
