24 new patients with dengue hospitalised

Twenty-four more dengue patients were hospitalised in 24 hours until Sunday morning, reports UNB.

All the new patients were admitted to different hospitals in Dhaka, according to the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

As many as 122 dengue patients, including 118 in the capital, are now receiving treatment at hospitals across the country.

This year, the DGHS has recorded 754 dengue cases and 632 recoveries so far. The directorate 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. In three years, the fatality number almost fell to zero.
