Hyderabad witnesses sudden rise in viral fever cases

The city has suddenly been hit hard by a rise in viral fever cases, with every fourth individual suffering from fever, upper respiratory tract infection, and myalgia (general weakness). According to doctors, viral fevers are on the rise because people are not using masks and are not maintaining social distancing. Experts have said that recovery is also taking longer than usual in a large percentage of instances.

“I have been suffering from fever, chills, nausea and dizziness for the last 10 days and despite taking paracetamol I did not get relief. When I visited the doctor in my locality, I found a few of my neighbours turning up with similar problems,” Vaishali Bhutola, a resident of Ameenpur area was quoted as saying.

Doctors are seeing a high number of patients from the same families, neighbourhoods, and workplaces. Doctors blamed it on people’s own actions, saying that many of them had thrown caution to the wind, failed to wear masks, and mingled with others without taking any precautions.
