EPIDEMIC CONTROL CELL

 

Whenever there is an epidemic outbreak anywhere in the Kanniyakumari District, the cell will reach over to the place and make a detailed study of the prevalent cases for finding the “Genus Epidemics”. It will be instantly followed by the distribution of prophylactic medicine to the people by conducting preventive camps. The active participants are the Interns and PG Scholars. Necessary feed-back studies are also conducted to evaluate the efficacy of the prophylactic medicine.
