<p>Following an epidemic of conjunctivitis, the Longding district government in Arunachal Pradesh ordered the temporary closure of all schools in the Kanubari sub-division.

<p>Doctors claim that the illness is very infectious and may spread from one affected individual to another, the DC said in the circular. A number of viruses may cause conjunctivitis, a highly infectious eye illness. Redness, irritation, excessive tearing, and a gritty sensation in the eye are typical symptoms. It may spread quickly by direct or indirect contact with respiratory droplets, contaminated items, or ocular secretions of an infected individual.</p>
<p>The health officials have advised regular hand washing, avoiding touching eyes, maintaining personal hygiene, sanitizing surfaces, and isolating affected people in order to stop the illness from spreading further. The circular for school closure, according to Longding DDSE Taje Jilen, was issued as a result of information from the Kanubari block education officer (BEO).</p>
<p>He said, “We don’t know how many pupils have been afflicted by the illness. A potential conjunctivitis epidemic has reportedly been detected in a number of West Siang district schools, according to an official communiqué.</p>
