Ten other affected persons are now undergoing treatment at the Jorhat Medical College Hospital.
Four JE patients with high fever were admitted to the hospital and they died, while two others were brought to the facility when they were already dead, Joint Director of Health and Family Welfare Dr Amrit Saikia said.
The health department has started spraying insecticides in the JE affected areas of the district such as Nakachari, Borhulla, Tipomiya and Soycotta tea estate.
Medicines and mosquito nets are also being distributed among the people there.
