- Dengue cases are increasing continuously in Delhi for the last several days.
- Government claims, there is no shortage of beds in Delhi hospitals
- At present, there are 221 dengue patients admitted in Delhi hospitals.
According to doctors, most of the normal dengue fever occurs first. A person recovers with timely treatment, but if dengue occurs again in the next year, there are high chances that he will have dengue hemorrhagic fever. Dr. Jugal Kishore, Head of the Department of Community Medicine at Safdarjung Hospital, says that if someone has normal dengue, then the chances of death are less than one percent. If hemorrhagic fever occurs and treatment is not received on time, then the chances of death are very high. The biggest problem comes when people start doing self-medication. If the condition worsens, then go to the hospital. If you have a fever more than 100, then you must go to the doctor. Secondly, people pay attention to platelets that if it is low then the condition will get worse, whereas it is not. There is no problem due to low platelets, as long as there is no bleeding from somewhere.
Dr. Neeraj Nischal, Infectious Disease Specialist of the Department of Medicine at AIIMS, says that overall, the death rate from dengue is less than one percent, but if the situation is critical, it reaches three to four percent. Due to dengue, when people take home remedies or take treatment by looking on the internet, then platelets start falling from it. However, there is no fear of falling platelets until your gums, urine, stool etc. start bleeding. These are alarming signs.
Because of this, more dengue cases come
Dr. Neeraj Nischal says that the malaria mosquito bites at night. We are sleeping at night, so he takes the amount of blood he needs through his sting. Dengue Aedes mosquito bites during the day. We stay up during the day, so we immediately drive away the mosquito when bitten. In such a situation, he cannot get the amount of blood he wants. He bites people one after the other. A mosquito fulfills its quota by biting at least four to five people. This is the reason why dengue cases come more.
