HYDERABAD (Southern Europe): According to doctors, the number of dengue cases in Hyderabad is on the rise, especially as a result of the Covid-19 outbreaks.The hotspots include: Madhapur, Kothaguda, Kukatpally, Manikonda, Banjara Hills, and Mehdipatnam, among others.Doctors estimate that at least five to six people have tested positive for dengue at the same time in many of these hostels, and in other cases, even severe dengue.Because many of them have round-the-clock lighting and even air conditioning (in upmarket PGs), dengue clusters have arisen.

When a patient is found to be suffering from a serious dengue infection, she is confronted with a heightened fever, body pain, red patches, and gastric symptoms.There are several cases of severe dengue being treated.The number of hospitalizations is also on the rise as a result of the exposure to multi-organ damage and even death.In many cases, more than one family member is afflicted with dengue, according to Dr Hari Kishan Boorugu, Yashoda Hospitals consultant doctor and diabetologist.

Dengue infection has risen dramatically thus far...We are worried about an additional rise in cases in the next few months, according to Dr Boorugu.Since the start of 2022, around 600 dengue cases have already been documented in the county.In the GHMC area, an increase of 5% to 6% has been recorded, although there have been few reports in other districts.Dengue cases would be on the increase as the weather and soil conditions allow aedes aegypti mosquitoes to breed, between 22 and 25 degree Celsius, as well as water stagnation, according to Dr Amar Singh, the National Centre for Vector-Borne Diseases Control's additional director and state program officer.
