Anthrax is a viral disease that is widespread in Visakhapatnam Agency areas, where the tribal population is affected. With proper treatment, the disease can be controlled. But there seems to be a lack of coordination, between the various government departments, leading to the neglect of the patients. A local doctor said that consumption of the carcass of dead cattle, which have been affected by Anthrax, causes the disease to spread among humans.
