At least 376 children have died of encephalitis in Gorakhpur this year while 4480 others were infected. And it isn't Gorakhpur's scourge alone; Assam, Delhi, Haryana and Chandigarh have reported cases as well. But despite the growing number of cases, the Centre has done little to prevent the recurring outbreaks that take so many lives.
