Rourkela, September 18 (LocalWire): Sundergarh administration has stated that the incidence of Dengue in the district has stabilised after initial virulence spread.
Overall, 52 patients were found to be Dengue positive in Sundergarh so far.
Speaking on the situation, Sundergarh CDMO Pankaj Patel said that after the initial alarming situation the condition could be said to be stabilising in the district.
“We have diagnosed 52 patients with positive signs of Dengue since 27 August and all of them were shifted to our hospital here. However, the situation seems to have settled down after the initial flow of Dengue cases,” Dr Patel said.
He informed that 25 patients have been discharged after they were cured.
“However, we have referred three patients to AIIMS Bhubaneswar and one has gone on his own there. Rest 23 patients are with us.
The good news is that none of them need platelets administration, which indicates that all the patients have reacted positively to the initial medication and medical attention provided to them,” he said.
The doctor also pointed out all parts of the district, except Khatkurbahal, can be said to have stabilised.
“A team of doctors is keeping an eye on the developments of Khatkurbahal. The team is visiting there regularly and taking all the cares required for containing the spread of the disease,” he said adding that the team was also engaged in creating awareness about the fever.
“In addition, the village-level workers are taking care to get rid of any water congestion, which is a potential breeding place of the mosquitoes,” Dr Patel said.
