India : It’s KEM docs vs builder over malaria outbreak

An article from Mumbai Mirror :

" After 10 resident medics were diagnosed with deadly strain of the disease, resident doctors’ association sends strong letter to BMC and dean blaming developer for dirty project sites.

Ten resident doctors from KEM hospital are not only battling a deadly strain of malaria, they are also locked in a battle with construction giant Indiabulls over unmonitored construction debris which may have turned into a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Nearly three months after the city emerged from a long spell of malaria epidemic, several doctors from KEM hospital were diagnosed with falciparum malaria last week and are undergoing treatment. Three of them have been shifted to the intensive care unit after their condition deteriorated."
