Mystery illness puts 450 in hospital in Indian state of Andhra Pradesh

One person has died and more than 450 have been admitted to hospital with a mystery illness in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

Over the weekend hundreds of people in Eluru, a town in the southern state, collapsed and experienced seizures and nausea, and some reportedly foamed at the mouth.

A 45-year-old man admitted to hospital with the symptoms had a heart attack and died.

Dolla Joshi Roy, a district surveillance officer, said 455 people had been taken to hospital and 200 had since been discharged. On Monday the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, YS Jaganmohan Reddy, visited patients in hospital.

The mystery outbreak has increased the burden on the healthcare system in Andhra Pradesh, one of the states worst affected by coronavirus with over 800,000 cases.
