Dengue Cases On The Rise In KP

PESHAWAR: The dengue cases have registered an unprecedented rise in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, including the provincial capital.

A first death reported in Abbotabad due to dengue while as many as 123 people are hospitalized in different hospitals of the province.

The number of dengue confirmed cases have jumped to 456, out of which 318 hospitalized in Noshehra, 317 in Peshawar and 200 in Bonair.

“The parts of the provincial capital city are in the grip of the infectious disease,” said a doctor, adding, since most of the facilities have been closed in the public sector hospitals due to the corona pandemic, patients suffering from dengue fever are being taken to peripheries.

In Peshawar’s rural areas, he said, dengue fever patients were treated in hujras (male guesthouses) due to lack of space in the hospitals.
