KORAPUT: One Jagabandhu Labara died of anthrax in Khadagpur village under Nandapur block on Wednesday. After consuming partially cooked meat at a feast in the village, he had taken ill.

As Jagabandhu did not take the help of doctors, his condition deteriorated. Later, he was found to be suffering from anthrax by ICDS staff who shifted him to Koraput Hospital where he succumbed.

Meanwhile, a team of doctors rushed to the village and provided medicines to eight other villagers who had also taken the meat in the feast.

Additional District Medical Officer Arun Padhi said a team of doctors is monitoring the situation.
