Govt struggles to tackle dengue caseload

Cool Story - Govt struggles to tackle dengue caseload

During the previous month, dengue fever persisted in Punjab, infecting at least 8,513 people and killing nine of them.

The total number of new cases and fatalities reported in October was higher than any other month in the current year.

The province's government's anti-dengue effort is having trouble keeping up with the growing number of cases. The Punjab Primary and Secondary Healthcare Department confirmed 8,513 dengue patients brought to public and private hospitals throughout the province throughout the month, according to official data.

Lahore residents also saw the worst month of the year, with 3,585 new cases of dengue reported, making the provincial capital the area most severely afflicted.

Over half of the total instances reported in the province since January are represented by the number of newly registered patients. In all of Punjab's districts during 2022, at least 14,882 cases of dengue fever have been confirmed.

Similar to this, 6,315 confirmed dengue cases over the course of the previous 10 months in Lahore, 3,585 of which were documented in October.

The number of dengue deaths increased significantly as well. In the province over the past month, the virus has claimed at least nine lives.

18 people have died in the province so far this year. In terms of deaths that were reported, 10 occurred in Lahore, four in Rawalpindi, three in Gujranwala, and one in the Gujrat district. "The situation in the province's hospitals is dire.”

The dengue wards are now providing care for at least 1,067 patients. 453 persons are being treated for fever in Lahore's hospitals, according to a health department official who spoke to The Express Tribune.

Although the disease has spread to practically all of Punjab's districts, Lahore, Gujranwala, Rawalpindi, and Faisalabad are the areas in the most dangerous due to the concentration of feverish patients.

The official stated that while a major cold snap was not expected in November, the month was also likely to pose a high danger for the spread of dengue fever. He predicted that a significant drop in temperature in the final week of December would cause the dengue disease season to end.

The authority advised individuals to take precautions in the upcoming weeks to safeguard themselves against dengue disease. "Anti-dengue actions are continuing throughout Punjab," stated Irshad Ahmad, the provincial secretary for primary and secondary healthcare. In the preceding 24 hours, he claimed, 146 new dengue cases had been confirmed in the province.
