The estimated prevalence rate of stroke ranges from 84-262/100,000 in rural areas. In urban areas, the rate is 334-424/100,000. Based on recent population-based studies, this rate is 119-145/100,000. Kolkata has the highest death rate of 42% due to stroke.

Why does a Stroke occur?

In India, due to no activity and stagnation lifestyle, and genetic diseases, people are at increased risk of stroke. A stroke is usually caused by a lack of oxygen.

When the blood circulation of the brain is affected due to any reason, then a stroke occurs. The attack comes suddenly inside the brain. Due to this, the blood vessels supplying blood to the brain burst. Due to this, there is a blockage of blood in the veins of the brain.

We are unaware of these things, due to which there is a lack of oxygen. People eat spicy and spicy food and lie down and use mobile phones for hours. This leads to an unhealthy lifestyle which increases the chances of stroke.
