World Health Organisation (WHO) states that every year close to 81,000 and 138,000 people die from snake bites globally and of these, nearly half are in India. Monsoons season is usually a high-risk period for seasonal snake bites. In one such incident, recently, a 5-year-old boy, Nischit, who had slipped into coma and complete paralysis due to a deadly snake bite and was fighting between life and death was given a new lease of life through the efforts of doctors at Aster CMI hospital and with the funds raised by a crowd-funding platform.
