Guwahati, July 16: Health and Family Welfare Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday disclosed that while Japanese Encephalitis has claimed 44 lives, 87 persons have died due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome in the State this year in the State so far. The hospitals across the State have recorded 305 and 1111 cases of JE and AES. Sarma said the adult vaccition drive against Japanese Encephalitis was not very successful this year, especially in minority-domited areas in the State due to certain false propaganda against the drive. He, however, said the drive will continue throughout the year.
