Viral Fever is Rampant
This street clinic was held around the Baba Ram dev Nagar Kachi Basti, where Navya lives (see her prior stories at savekidstrust.org/stories). This December, all the clinics are fighting cases of viral fever in children and adults. Cough and cold symptoms are very common, and children present with fevers as well. Cough syrup is hard to keep stocked, Dr. Saini said!
‘Nagar’ means ‘street.’
‘Basti’ means ‘slum,’ which we prefer to call informal housing settlement.
