The healthcare system needs to gear up quickly as lakhs of people in relief camps return homes and seek medical services. It is a huge task to rebuild everything. The health department also suffered great loss.

More than 10 hospitals and many sub centres were destroyed completely. Many hospitals suffered partial loss. Many hospital equipment were destroyed," said Shailaja. Many people, organizations and institutions have promised help and if all this materializes in a proper way, the problem can be solved easily.

We have decided to open temporary hospitals to tackle health issues," she said. The state government is taking help from the private sector and also sought help from other states. Teams of expert doctors have arrived from several states including Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh with essential drugs. The central government, too, has sent an expert team and provided materials for environmental sanitation.

Many of them have started functioning and within two weeks, all of them will be working in full swing," said Shailaja. Standing water caused by heavy rainfall or overflow of rivers can act as breeding sites for mosquitoes, and therefore enhance the potential for the breeding of vectors of dengue, chikungunya, malaria, Japanese encephalitis, etc. Flooding may initially flush out mosquito breeding, but it comes back when the waters recede," a senior NCDC official told Mint.
