Condition of 5 exposed to radiation is critical

Condition of 5 exposed to radiation is critical

Admitted to Apollo Hospital on April 4, which informed the government that he had suffered radiation, doctors said, the scrap dealer Deepak Jain’s bone marrow is significantly suppressed and his condition continues to be serious.

At present he is in the ICU and a team of doctors is monitoring his progress.
Jain’s relative Rajesh said: “His health began deteriorating 10 to 20 days ago. He complained of nausea and headache. At first, he was admitted to Kalra Hospital but due to unavailability of funds, we shifted him to AIIMS. He was turned down there and finally with help from neighbours, he is undergoing treatment at Apollo.”

Four of Jain’s scrap shop employees are undergoing treatment at Deen Dayal Upadhyay hospital. “Their condition is very serious. Their platelet count has come down extremely. They went blank and out of their senses. Their skin had also turned black. It had started with their nails first,” medical superintendent, DDU hospital, said.
