KANPUR: Domestic disease management training was held at the Community Health Centre on Friday. Speaking on the occasion district malaria officer AK Singh said filaria patients should clean their body by soap regularly and do the exercises prescribed by the doctors which help in controlling swelling and a patient can live a normal life.
The programme was organized with the active cooperation of Centre for Advocacy and Research (CFAR) organization. The training was given to 62 members of Rakhi, Ram Raheem and CIFA patient help group and 17 others. Joint director V P Singh also joined the training online. Nodal officer of communicable disease OP Gautam on this occasion stated that filaria is also known as Elephant feet and is caused by the bite of Culex mosquito.
As the serum of mosquitoes becomes active at night, therefore, blood samples are collected at night, and the life of the patient of this disease becomes hell. The health department has provided treatment of this disease. Once the disease occurs it cannot be cured but can be reduced, said Gautam. Presenting morbidity management kits to about 79 patients of filariasis, he said that patients could take care of themselves only by staying at home.
