With 135 cases of acute encephalitis syndrome (AES) -- which manifests itself in the form of brain fever -- Lucknow district has the maximum number of cases of the deadly disease this year [2018] among 48 districts of the state where it is reported. This is 15 times more than the number of cases last year [2017].

The data maintained by the health department from 1 Jan - 6 Jul this year [2018] records 11 AES deaths in Lucknow. Apart from this, 6 cases of Japanese encephalitis (JE), a disease which is spread by mosquitoes, and 2 JE deaths have been recorded from the district.

In 2017, while there were merely 9 cases of AES from Lucknow, only one JE case was reported between 1 Jan - 6 Jul [2017]. No patient was recorded to have died due [to these diseases].

As of now, the state [of Uttar Pradesh] has recorded 1219 cases of AES, which is more than double the number of cases, 517, recorded last year [2017]. The health department claims the spurt is because of enhanced monitoring of all fever patients. "The rise of cases is because of better reporting and awareness. The special Vector-Borne Diseases Month is also working," said a health department official.
