They are prone to seasonal diseases.In fact, there was more neglect of malnourished children during the Corona period, which has further increased malnutrition. When they went to their homes, no department staff took care of these children. Even in the hospitals’ nutritional rehabilitation centers (NRCs), children could not come from far away areas during this time.

Anganwadi workers from malnourished children have brought them to CHC, PHC. More malnourished children were sent to the ongoing NRC of the GSVM Medical College Children’s Hospital. The number of children here was very low during the Corona period.

There are 10 beds in the NRC, but they were never occupied. The average here is only four children, while the number of malnourished children tends to be in the outskirts of the city. Pediatricians say that many children whose malnutrition has been eliminated due to negligence fall back into the malnutrition category. Helats NRC director Dr. Roopa Dalmiya Singh says that although the work is ongoing, fewer children came during the Corona period.

Less than five years: 10%
Five to 10 years: 07 percent
