this is contagious with respiratory infection.Hospitals in udupi and surroundings, standards related to infection control is not that effective as per my observations. Hope the people take extra precations while visiting the hospitals.Still health care practise is poor and is more of business.Read more articles on internet and take precautions, so that we can avoid unnecessary deaths.Buiding good immunity system with chidrens can aviod this enfections.
