120 people have been affected by dengue fever in Tamil Nadu from 8th to 14th. They have been admitted in government hospitals and private hospitals.
18 people have been diagnosed with dengue fever in one day the day before yesterday. For this, separate wards for dengue fever have been established in government hospitals. And the necessary medicines are also in stock.
An average of 15 to 20 dengue cases are reported daily. As the incidence of dengue is on the rise, instructions have been given to the health department officials to go from house to house and inspect drinking water tanks. The Aedes mosquito that transmits dengue only lays its eggs and hatches in fresh water. Tamil Nadu has been experiencing sporadic rains, so we need to find out who is affected by the flu. And drastic measures are being taken to prevent the breeding of Aedes mosquitoes.
Plastic bags, tires etc. in the open should be removed. Measures are also being taken to create awareness among the public about dengue prevention.
Hemorrhage may occur if dengue fever becomes severe. Thus blood transfusion is important for the patient. Due to this, steps are being taken to ensure that there is enough blood in the blood banks.
In this situation, since the northeast monsoon will start in October, an emergency consultation has been held today under the Health Minister Ma.Subramanian to prevent further increase in the incidence of dengue. The Chief Minister has ordered to intensify measures to prevent dengue.
Similarly, in our neighboring state of Kerala, Nipah virus has been affected again. Nipah virus has a higher death toll than the Corona virus, which has created a lot of fear there.
Generally there are many people going abroad and returning from Kerala. Many people come and go to the neighboring state of Tamil Nadu. Even Corona was first detected in Kerala in India. If a disease spreads in Kerala, it can easily spread to Tamil Nadu. Checks are being conducted at the borders to prevent it.
Let's eliminate dengue fever by monitoring and maintaining cleanliness in the surrounding area! Let's wear a face shield and drive away the Nipah virus!
