5,760 affected by cold-related diseases in 24hrs

BSS, Dhaka

Various cold-related diseases have affected 5,760 people across the country in the last 24 hours, a press release said yesterday. Data from the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) control room showed that 866 of the patients received treatment for acute respiratory infection during the same period.

Another 2,078 were treated for diarrhoea and 2,816 for other diseases including jaundice, inflammation in the eye, skin diseases and fever.

Fifty seven deaths were reported across the country between November 1 and January 16 due to cold-related diseases, the release added.

However, Bangladesh Meteorological Department yesterday predicted that weather would remain dry with temporary partly cloudy sky over the next 24 hours commencing 6 pm yesterday.

Weather may remain dry with temporary partly cloudy sky over the country, having chances of light rain or drizzle at one or two places over Rangpur division, the Met office said in the evening.  Moderate to thick fog may occur at places over the country during midnight to morning. Night temperature may rise slightly over the country. Day temperature may fall slightly over Rangpur division and it may remain nearly unchanged elsewhere over the country, the Met office said.

The highest temperature on Thursday was recorded 31 degree Celsius in Cox’s Bazar, while today’s minimum temperature was 10.8 degree Celsius in Tetulia and Srimangal.

Since mid December last year hospitals have been crowded with people suffering from cold-related illnesses, such as influenza, dehydration and pneumonia.

Those on low incomes, particularly labourers, are the worst affected by the cold weather because they lack clothes while many others, especially children and the elderly people, are prone to diseases such as pneumonia.
