Jammu: Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan Saturday said additional consignments of emergency medicines will be despatched to flood-ravaged Jammu and Kashmir.

Harsh Vardhan who reviewed the situation in the region during a day-long tour, said various kinds of antibiotics, oral rehydration solution sachets, anti-diarrhoeal drugs, chlorine tablets, bleaching powder, medicines for eye and skin infections, IV fluids and other essential drugs will be sent within the next few days.

“We have already despatched a large quantity of medicines over the past week but on seeing the needs there myself, I feel we have to boost up the stocks to deal with the post-flood situation which from my experience tends to drag on for months,” he said.
