The state government has planned to set up homeopathy camps at Ganga Sagar Mela this year.
The medical officers dividing themselves in six groups will organise health camps at fair premises. According to a senior official in the state health department, this is the first time homeopathy health camps are being organised to check up the health condition of the pilgrims.
Thousands of people from various parts of the state and outside gather there to have a holy dip in the Sagar island in this time of the year. Due to long travel many of the pilgrims fall ill while taking part in the religious programme. If any of the pilgrims complain any kind of uneasiness, they will be provided treatment in these camps. The medicines will be distributed among them at free of costs. There will be some arrangements of transporting the pilgrims to the nearest hospitals if they fell ill.
