Dengue surge:237 more hospitalized in 24 hrs

A total of 237 fresh dengue cases were reported in Bangladesh in the last 24 hours till Wednesday morning.

The outbreak of dengue fever –over 100 dengue patients reported daily for more than a week—has sparked new worries as the country’s health services are already overburdened with growing Covid cases and fatalities.

Of the new dengue cases, 231 were reported in Dhaka while the rest  from outside the capital, said the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

According to the (DGHS), 1058 patients are currently receiving treatment at different hospitals across the country.

Some 3,683 patients have been admitted to different hospitals with dengue since January and 2617 of them have been released after they recovered.

Dengue fever was first reported in Bangladesh in 2000, claiming 93 lives that year. In the years that followed, the country learned to deal with the disease much better.

The fatalities had almost fallen to zero at one stage, before surging again in 2018, leading to the severe outbreak the following year.
