35-year-old youth was killed on Friday
Hemant Patil, a resident of Nilgiris in Limbayat, died of fever and vomiting on Friday. He was originally from Maharashtra. His health was bad for two days. After vomiting and diarrhoea, he was taken to the hospital, where he died.
If diarrhea and vomiting become more, then there is swelling in the kidney. There is a danger of death due to this. Due to high fever and diarrhea, BP becomes very low at times. Even if BP comes down to 40 to 50, there is still a danger. However, delay in treatment can result in death.
