Bihar is in the news with 37 children and a cook getting hospitalized last evening after allegedly consuming a midday meal at a government school in a village in Pakaridayal subdivision of Bihar’s East Champaran district.
East Champaran’s civil surgeon (CS) Anjani Kumar confirmed that the condition of the students is stable.
“Prima facie, the illness appears to be caused by food poisoning. These students have been kept under our active observation for 24 hours. However, the exact cause could be known after the examination of the food sample,” said civil surgeon, East Champaran.
