Dengue Cases Spike in Telangana, Putting Administration on Alert

According to the latest reports, the state of Telangana has seen an increase in dengue cases.

As per Dr. K Shankar, Superintendent of Government Fever Hospital, there has been a rise in outpatients (OP). There are approximately 1,000 or more OP on examination, and symptoms such as cold cough, body pains, and some rashes in the body were discovered, he added.

He went on to say that the majority of the cases are dengue. The state had around 80 cases last month, but around 100 confirmed cases were reported at the Fever Hospital in September. There have also been reports of chicken pox and diphtheria.

The patients have received symptomatic support treatment, according to the superintendent, and the recovery rate has been good thus far.

“We have seen that the number of cases is higher in the GHMC area, but the severity of cases is lower,” he added. Aside from dengue, there are cases of typhoid, jaundice, and gastroenteritis. Seasonal flu is more common.

The Telangana government is taking all precautionary measures, and all employees have been notified.  The number of reported cases is increasing, but not alarmingly so, he added.

He went on to say that nearly 200 dengue cases had been treated in the last two months, but none required platelet transmission. The majority of patients do not require transmission. They are recovering on their own and are only receiving symptomatic treatment.

Aside from normal factors that produce mosquitoes, stagnant water in houses is a huge contributing factor to the increase in mosquitoes. Because 80% of mosquito breeding occurs in containers such as drums, utensils, coconut shells, open water tanks, and stagnant water on roads, everyone should set aside time each week to clean out stagnant water, said a report.
