Mizoram
Aizawl, June 12: Many villagers in Mizoram's remote Lawngtlai district along the Myanmar border were taken sick due to suspected malaria, officials in the Lawngtlai district headquarters today said.

The Malaria-hit villages included Damdep-I, Damdep-II, Vathuampui and surrounding remote villages, they said. Reports said more than 80 per cent of Damdep villagers were suffering from Malaria where very few of them went to south Mizoram's Lunglei town and Lawngtlai town for treatment as there were no doctors in the nearest Bungtlang South Primary Health Centre (PHC).

Unprecedented heat wave was experienced in the area during this summer aggravating spread of malaria, the reports said, adding there were no deaths.
