A team of Indian scientists based in New Delhi has discovered a more significant breakthrough in the treatment of severe scrub typhus, an often deadly bacterial infection transmitted through mite bites. The disease affects thousands of people worldwide each year, mainly in Asia and the Pacific. The novel treatment method, developed by the team, has been shown to be significantly more effective at treating the illness than previous methods. The discovery paves the way for doctors to more adequately treat severe cases of scrub typhus, reducing death rates and potentially lowering healthcare costs.
