Sambhal (Uttar Pradesh) [India] August 11 (ANI): At least 7 children were hospitalised after they were allegedly given Albendazole tablets in the Sambhal district on Saturday.
The children, at an Anganwadi centre, were administered the anti-worm tablets, after which they complained of stomach ache. The staff, then, rushed the kids to the Chandausi Government Hospital where they are undergoing a treatment.
Speaking to ANI, Amita Singh, the Chief Medical Officer, informed, "Some 8-9 children complained of stomach ache after having the medicine. They were admitted to the hospital. First-aid has been given to them."
Despite governmental efforts, condition of some Anganwadis or day-care centres, has often remained dismal, specially in rural areas.
Just last month, 13 children and a helper at an Anganwadi center in Delhi's Uttam Nagar were hospitalised after allegedly having a mid-day meal. (ANI)
