Almost 600 people infected: an unknown disease in India will be studied by WHO experts

The World Health Organization will study the outbreak of an unknown disease in India. WHO experts have already flown to the city of Eluru, where almost 600 people have been affected by the disease.

Doctors will test blood and urine samples of the sick, as well as examine what they ate and drank. Recall that the outbreak of the unknown disease began last week. People complained of severe headaches, dizziness and nausea, and patients also had epilepsy attacks and memory loss. A total of 593 people sought medical attention, one of whom died.

Patients tested negative for coronavirus. According to the preliminary version, the cause of the disease could be lead and nickel poisoning. These substances were found in the blood of patients, reports BBC News.
