In nearby Dhemaji district four children died of the disease even as the district administration swung into action to take preventive measures, the sources said.

The affected people have been admitted to civil hospitals and nursing homes.

The district administration is planning to depute a special team of doctors in the two districts to prevent the disease from assuming an epidemic form, the sources added.
