The child’s mother brought her 7-month-old child to Mirzachowki PHC Telemedicine center, Jharkhand for treatment. The child had watery loose stools with fever for the last ten days. He was shocked and breathing fast. On examination, the child had no signs of dehydration. Other than the loose watery stools, the child appeared healthy. “He started out with vomiting and then diarrhoea, and now he is running a fever. I’ve tried everything I can think of to keep him well”. Said his mother.
