Muzaffarpur: A portion of the roof outside a paediatric intensive care unit (ICU) of Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital, where several AES patient children are being treated, collapsed in Muzaffarpur on Sunday.

As many as 43 children suffering from Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) have been admitted in the ICU of the hospital.

 

Elaborating on the incident, Sunil Kumar Shahi, SKMCH, Muzaffarpur superintendent told ANI, "A patch of plaster from the roof fell off, nobody has been injured. It's not inside any ward but around the veranda area. PICU is in between ward number 6-7 but the patch fell between ward number 5-6."

The hospital is the largest medical facility treating AES patients in the district. As many as 109 people have lost their lives fighting the AES at the hospital.

The Bihar government is facing severe criticism in the wake of the children's death due to the disease.
