25 Jan 2016 – Life is almost paralysed by the biting cold in nine upazilas of the district. The poor are burning hay and fallen leaves to keep them warm.
Acting assistant director of Pabna General Hospital, Mahmudur Rahman, said the children had been suffering from pneumonia, cough, asthma, diarrhoea and fever, caused by severe cold.
Besides, nearly 1000 patients, including children, received treatment from the hospital during the last week for cold-related diseases, he said.
