Thiruvananthapuram: With Kerala assembly Speaker G. Karthikeyan too down with fever, which seems to be assuming gigantic proportions, the government has moved to ensure more than adequate supply of medicines and presence of medical professionals in state-run hospitals.Chief Minister Oommen Chandy told the state assembly Thursday that all measures are being taken to tackle the spread of fever across the state.He said this in response to an adjournment motion moved by senior Communist party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) legislator Elamaram Kareem.Kareem pointed out that the price of medicines has gone up like never before and drug manufacturers were having a free run."We have asked authorities to see that they can make local purchases of medical supplies. I request all legislators to report to us if there is any shortage of either medicines or manpower in any of the state-run hospitals in their constituencies. If there is any shortage, it will be immediately addressed," said Chandy.Kareem told IANS that state assembly Speaker G. Karthikeyan too was down with the fever and hence was not present in the assembly Thursday morning.
