Meanwhile, the state opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) staged a protest against the state government for the outbreak of the disease.

Party's MLA from Shimla, Suresh Bhardwaj alleged that state government and Shimla Municipal Corporation (SMC) failed to tackle the outbreak of the disease.

The health department has divided the affected area in six sectors. Several jaundice cases have also been reported from parts of Solan.
