Dengue fever: 35 patients hospitalised in 24 hours
At least 35 new dengue patients were hospitalised across the country in 24 hours till 8:00 am today (June 25, 2022).
With the new cases, the total number of dengue patients rose to 920, according to the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).
Among the new cases only two are from outside of Dhaka.
Among the dengue patients, 127 are still undergoing treatment. A total of 792 patients so far have been released from hospitals and one patient has died so far.
Warning the city corporations of a major outbreak of dengue virus this year compared to the last couple of years, experts suggested to take extensive measures immediately to control the spread of Aedes mosquitoes.
Dhaka is at risk of a major dengue outbreak this year compared to the last couple of years, as clear, stagnant water, the breeding ground for Aedes mosquitoes, at under-construction buildings is abundant this time around.
The scenario came to light after the DGHS conducted a pre-monsoon survey between March 23 and April 4.
Experts asked authorities concerned to take immediate steps to address the matter.
