There has been a sudden spurt in jaundice cases and waterborne diseases in some parts of Shimla in the past few days. Following the outbreak of jaundice, the state administration has put a ban on sale of eatables in open as a precautionary measure.

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