Health Desk—April 14, 2017: A mysterious disease has infected three of a four-member family for years in Natore district.
According to the sources, the disease - characterised by an imbalanced mental and physical state and loss of vocal power and vision - suddenly broke out in the family.
The mother Jotsna Begum, 50, who was affected by the disease eight years ago, and her two sons, Zahurul Islam, 24, and Rakibul Islam, 22, were spotted with the symptoms a year back.
The sole earning member of the family Mofiz Uddin, a day labourer living in Lalmonipur village in Sadar upazila of the district, said he is unable to bear the medical costs for the three ailing members of the family.
Natore Sadar Hospital physician stated that initially it seems a genetical problem, but it needs further investigation to be confirmed.
However, he said that they will try their best in this regard.
