Most of them are from Thulibheri municipality, ward no 2 and 3. Doctor Sijan Baral shared that the hospital was forced to provide treatment to 10 patients on the floor while 15 on the bed. Even the bed used by health workers at quarters is brought to hospital for the patients, he added. Doctor Rawal however shared that both the province and central agencies were informed about the problem. They were asked to be serious to control the problem on time because the typhoid could grow to take epidemic proportions for the public. Even the drug in the stock was getting used up because no flight was conducted from Nepalgunj to Dolpa for three days. Moreover, even the health workers attending to the patients began suffering from typhoid. Dr Bhim Bahadur Budha, nurse Dilu Budha, CMA Ganga Ojha and Dilip Rokaya, ANM Pushpa Oli and Jhuma Hamal, and lab assistant Kanchan Rokaya and other employees have been suffering from fever.
