 Viral Infection Hits Trainee Sub-Inspectors in Hyderabad

More than 50 trainee sub inspectors with the excise department were rushed to hospital in Hyderabad following a suspected outbreak of diphtheria after they complained of fever, severe throat pain and body ache.

The trainees, of which 10 are women, were undergoing training at Rajendranagar's Andhra Pradesh Prohibition and Excise Academy. All of the admitted trainees had white patches around their throats.

They were initially taken to the Fever Hospital but were later sent to government hospital for treatment. Fever Hospital officials said that they are currently awaiting the results of the throat swabs taken from the patients.

"Clinical investigations suggest viral or bacterial infection. Yet, we are waiting for the results of the throat swabs which will be available tomorrow. The condition of the patients is stable but they require rest", Fever Hospital superintendent Dr K Shankar said.
