Dangerous Snakes Village At Chhattisgarh | ఆ ఊరిలో మనుషుల కన్నా పాములే ఎక్కువంట
Chhattisgarh’s Naglok is flooded with snakebites:
The first shower of monsoon did not bring joy and anticipation to the tribal people of Naglok in north Chhattisgarh. Instead, it filled the residents of this rural area with fear and dread, owing to the number of people who lost their lives due to snakebites in the past few weeks.
This monsoon, 18 deaths have been reported so far in Jashpur district, where 222 people have died of snakebite since 2004. However, according to the locals, only one out of four such cases reach hospital. More than 1,000 people have died of snakebite in the last decade, despite huge funds being spent on awareness campaigns and other measures to tackle the problem.
The biggest fear among the locals is the krait, a snake that is 15 times more poisonous than the common cobra. Its venom is a powerful neurotoxin which causes muscle paralysis and respiratory failure. Classified under the genus Bungarus, three of its species — common krait, black krait and banded krait — are mainly found in the Naglok region, which spreads over about 700 sq km.
