Unidentified disease in Sitakunda: Committees submit probe reports
The two probe committees, formed to investigate the unidentified disease which had claimed lives of nine children in Sitakunda, have submitted their reports. The investigators submitted their reports to Chittagong Civil Surgeon Dr Azizur Rahman Siddiqui on Sunday. Dr Azizur Rahman Siddiqui told the Dhaka Tribune the probe reports have been sent to Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) for the next course of action. When asked about the findings of the probes, the civil surgeon said he did not read the reports as they were dispatched to the IEDCR.
