“Naxalism and police action are the two biggest known killers in Chhattisgarh. But there is a third, a silent killer. Falciparum Malaria is known, all over the world, to kill nearly 13% of its patients.
Perplexingly, Chhattisgarh’s reports seem to defy all medical odds. According to data sent to MH and FW, New Delhi, 190,590 people had suffered from malaria in Chhattisgarh in 2007, and of these cases, 144,766 cases (75%) were Falciparum. Bizarrely, there were only three recorded deaths. Also, officially, there had been no Malaria deaths in 2012.
Anthony K Kujurseems to have silently slipped between the cracks. He is one of those Chhattisgarh’s ‘invisible dead’.”
