| Friday | 7th December, 2018
A total of 19 leprosy cases has been identified amid the 14-day campaign that started on November 10.
Of the 19, four cases are Multi-bacillary (MB) cases while rest are Paucibacillary (PB).
Multi-Drug Therapy (MDT) is a combination of drugs for MB and PB leprosy patients.
"It is difficult to maintain a record for leprosy patients as at least 30 per cent of the patients provide wrong address out of shame.
The programme had registered doctors and volunteers who went door-to-door in the National Capital to screen leprosy patients and now will be providing treatment to those affected by the disease.
