Bangladesh reported 15 new dengue cases in the 24 hours to Saturday morning, reports UNB.

Fifteen people were hospitalised with dengue – a viral infection – at that time in Dhaka city, according to the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

Forty-three dengue patients, including 42 in the capital, are receiving treatment at hospitals across the county.

In 2022, the DGHS has recorded 310 dengue cases and 267 recoveries so far. However, it has not yet reported any death from the mosquito-borne viral disease.

Dengue – a leading cause of serious illness and death in some Asian and Latin American countries – was first reported in Bangladesh in 2000 and claimed 93 lives.
