The cause of the outbreak of an unknown disease in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh may have been lead and nickel poisoning.These substances were found in patients’ blood.
However, these data are not yet definitive. Tests for coronavirus in patients showed a negative result.
“We ruled out water or air pollution after officials visited areas where people got sick. It’s some kind of mysterious disease, only laboratory analysis will show what it is,” said the state ministry of health.
Recall that an outbreak of an unknown disease began last week in Eluru City. People complained of severe headaches, dizziness and nausea. More than 500 people applied for medical help, one of them died.
