A total of 287 fresh dengue cases were reported in Bangladesh in the last 24 hours till Monday morning , the highest number in single day so far this year.
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, reports UNB.
Of the new dengue cases, 279 were reported in Dhaka while only eight from outside the capital, said the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).
According to the (DGHS), 978 patients are currently receiving treatment at different hospitals across the country.
Some 3,182 patients have been admitted to different hospitals with dengue since January and 2,200 of them have been released after they recovered.
To eradicate dengue larvae in Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) areas a control room will be opened from Monday, said DSCC mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh.
Sheikh Taposh said that the control room of Dhaka South City Corporation will be opened from August 2 to eradicate the source of dengue larvae.
The mayor said this at Nagar Bhaban on Sunday while addressing the meeting regarding measures to control dengue.
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.
