It has been revealed that about 78,000 infants born with congenital heart disease in India die every year because of inadequate health care facilities.
According to the recent survey, “Every year 1.5 lakh infants were born in India with congenital heart disease.”
The acute lack of awareness and ignorance in people coupled with insufficient medical facilities have further pushed up the cases of congenital heart disease.
“Work-related tension coupled with changed lifestyle of young people that caused them to hurry and scurry for work had resulted in even people in the age group of 30 to 40 years get heart attacks or suffer from heart-related problems,” he said.
