Solapur: The death toll due to cholera
has gone up to 13 in Solapur city, gripped by the epidemic
since last week.

Earlier, only few parts of the city were reported for
the gastro and cholera patients, particularly slums located at
the Ashok Chowk area. But even after the tall claims made by
the civic authorities, the epidemic is spreading rapidly in
other parts.

Sneha Basavraj Bansode, 4, a resident of Bapuji Nagar,
died at the government hospital today morning. She was
admitted to the hospital after getting complaint of stomach
pain and omitting.

Chief Minister Ashok Chavan had recently sent a
delegation of ministers-including Laxman Dhobale and Foujiya
Khan- to take stock of the situation in the city.
