Three people have so far died of viral fever at Purumuru village of Soru rural municipality-6 in Mugu.

The deceased are identified as Hari Bahadur Shahi (72), Kriti Chantyal (75) and Kushum Dholi (24), according to local resident Karnajit Bumi. The prevailing fever is suspected to be viral.

The outbreak has affected multiple areas, including Jima, Bhiee, Natharpu, Sipa, Khyalcha, and Bumcha, in addition to Purumuru.

The District Hospital in Mugu is grappling with an influx of patients, and locals have raised concerns about the lack of medical and other support from the government. Karnajit Bumi expressed the desperation of the people in seeking assistance.

Reports indicate that local health posts are running out of essential supplies, including basic medications like paracetamol. In response to the situation, the District Health Office visited Purumuru and Jima on Tuesday, conducting health checkups for over 150 individuals.

District Hospital's Dr Kamal Dhungana explained that the viral fever is exacerbated by the increasing cold and it is expected to take some time to bring the situation under control. Symptoms of fever include continuous sweating, headache, muscle pain, loss of appetite, and fatigue.
