Diarrhoea spreading in Barishal alarmingly

Diarrhoea spreading in Barishal alarmingly

Diarrhoea has spread alarmingly in Barishal during the last three days and patients are getting admitted to hospitals every day. As the number of patients is more than the number of beds, patients have to sleep in the corridors of the hospitals. Barishal General Hospital (BGH), one of the biggest diarrhoea treatment centres in the country's southern region, is currently treating diarrhoea patients three times its normal flow.

While visiting the Barishal General Hospital (BGH) yesterday, this correspondent found patients receiving intravenous saline on the corridors of the hospital.

“I admitted my two-year-old- child as he was attacked by diarrhoea. As no bed is empty, I have to stay in the veranda of the hospital,” said Taslima from Barishal Sadar upazila.“Barishal General Hospital (BGH) is a hundred-bed hospital, and only four beds are allotted for diarrhoea patients.

But we are now treating 30-40 diarrhoea patients every day,” said Dr Delowar Hossain, resident medical officer of Barishal General Hospital (BGH).

A senior nurse at Barishal General Hospital (BGH) said more than 50 diarrhoea patients have been admitted to the hospital in the last 72 hours, and the number of patients is increasing every day.

Patients from Barguna and Bhola are also flocking to the hospital.

Most of the patients said that they were victims of food poisoning.

District Civil Surgeon Dr Manowar Hossain said normally 20 to 30 patients receive diarrhoea treatment in nine health complexes and one general hospital, but in the last three days, number of patients has reached 109.

Many diarrhoea patients are being treated in the hospital corridor due to lack of accommodation, he said.

Contaminated water and food poisoning were behind the ailments, said the civil surgeon.
