Dengue infection is on the rise in Bangladesh along with coronavirus infection. At a time when the rate of coronavirus infection is on the rise, the situation could escalate if the dengue infection is not brought under control quickly and the dengue fever is not epidemic to us but it is not less in any part. Every year a huge number of the population of our country is getting infected with dengue fever and many are dying. In order to be protected from dengue, one has to be aware of others just as one has to be aware. Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne viral disease. The disease is spread by Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes. It can be easily distinguished from other mosquitoes by the white and black striped spots on the body and legs. These mosquitoes usually grow in clean closed water. Aedes mosquitoes are initially thought to play 90 to 95% role in the spread of dengueDengue has killed 29 people across the country on August 28. At this time, 6,911 people have been diagnosed with dengue, which is the highest this year. According to the statistics of the Health Emergency Operations Center and Control Room of the Department of Health on Saturday (August 28). John has been admitted to dengue. Of them, 214 are in Dhaka and 51 in hospitals outside Dhaka. At present, 1,111 patients are admitted in various government and private hospitals across the country. Of these, 98 are in Dhaka and 144 are out of Dhaka. From January 1 to August 28 this year, 9,569 patients were admitted and 8,415 were discharged. 32 in January, 9 in February, 13 in March, three in April, three in May. There were 43 patients, 272 in June, 2,0286 in July and 6,911 so far this month. And the outbreak of dengue in Bangladesh in 2019 was more than any time in the past. For the first time that year, dengue has spread to 64 districts. At that time, the number of dengue cases exceeded one lakh. The Disease Control Branch of the Department of Health confirmed the death of 148 people due to this disease. However, more than 250 deaths have been reported from hospitals and doctors in different districts of the country, including Dhaka. The incidence of dengue was slightly lower in 2020. That year 1,405 people were admitted to the hospital. Twelve suspected dengue deaths were reported to the IEDCR. The Department of Health confirmed the deaths of 7 people due to dengue. The highest number of deaths due to dengue before 2019 was in 2000, 93 people. In the same year, the disease took its first terrible shape, affecting 5,551 people. After that, the number of dengue fever cases and deaths decreased continuously. From 2003 to 2015, the number of victims was less than four thousand, the number of deaths was also very low.
In 2016, the number of dengue cases dropped to six thousand, but the following year it decreased. Then again the dengue outbreak increased in 2018 That year the outbreak increased and the number of dengue cases gave birth to new records In the year 10 thousand 148 people were infected and 26 people died. From 2000 to 2018, a total of 50,148 people were treated for dengue fever. The next year, in the last 19 years, the total number of dengue patients exceeded the number of dengue cases in August alone, 52,636 people were identified. Dengue symptoms: -* Dengue fever Dengue-virus infection can range from asymptomatic to a variety of symptoms, even death. Commonly seen dengue fever, often called classical dengue, is an acute type of fever that, in addition to sudden onset of fever, is accompanied by pain in the front of the head, pain in the eyes, nausea, vomiting, and red rash. Inflammation of the eyes and severe back pain often occur. These symptoms last for 5-7 days and the patient may feel tired for a few more days and then recover.
Most infections, especially in children under 15, can be completely asymptomatic or minimally invasive. Skin rashes occur in about 50% of cases, first on the hands, feet and then on the neck. Bleeding of the face, throat or chest during fever. Bleeding in the eyes of a dengue patient.* Hemorrhagic dengue fever is a disease of children mainly in Southeast Asia. Bleeding dengue is a deadly form of dengue. The main symptoms are the same for everyone, regardless of age. At the onset of dengue fever, the body temperature suddenly rises (380-400 C) and lasts for 2 to 7 days. Bleeding or dengue shock usually occurs within 3 to 7 days. It includes headache, persistent fever, weakness and severe pain in joints and muscles. Although the disease starts mildly with upper respiratory tract infections, there is a sudden onset of shock and bleeding inside the skin and bleeding through the ears. The number of nuclei in the blood continues to decrease and there is an indication of impending shock from the increasing hematopoietic tendency of the blood. Bleeding dengue patients need good care and monitoring, as the above changes can happen very quickly and the patient’s condition can become critical.* Dengue-Shock Syndrome This is another type of hemorrhagic dengue, with narrowed blood pressure, low blood pressure or impaired blood flow with obvious shock. The liver can be touched from outside the body and becomes soft and Enzymes usually cause abnormalities, but rarely jaundice. Other symptoms include persistent abdominal pain, occasional vomiting, restlessness or fatigue, and sudden onset of fever with sweating, chills, and complete loss of body. Severe infections were rare before 1980. But by 1996. hemorrhagic dengue was a distinct disease in tropical and sub-tropical countries, including Bangladesh, causing large and small epidemics. According to the World Health Organization, dengue is on the rise worldwide. Of the nearly 5 million infected patients each year, at least 500,000 are hospitalized with hemorrhagic dengue, a large proportion of whom are children and about five percent die. The resurgence of global dengue and the origin of hemorrhagic dengue are rooted in unprecedented population growth, unplanned and uncontrolled urbanization, increased air travel, lack of mosquito control and deteriorating public health structures over the past 30 years.Why dengue after winter?
Since the beginning of this century, when it rains every year after winter in our country, mosquito infestation increases. Mosquito-borne disease dengue is on the rise. So during this corona period, there is no stopping rain, there is no stopping mosquito breeding. Outbreaks of dengue are very high in big cities including Dhaka. However, dengue patients are being found all over the country. So far, the highest number of dengue patients has been found last year. More died. Which mosquito spreads dengue? Mosquito infestation throughout the year including Dhaka. But the dengue outbreak does not last all year round. This is because the Aedes mosquitoes responsible for spreading dengue grow in clean water. And this clean water is available right after the rain. This Aedes mosquito lays its eggs in any place where rain water has accumulated.What is the way to survive from dengue?Prevention is better than cure. Only good is said but less is said. This is the best way to survive. Whoever has dengue in this coronary state of corona will understand what the situation will be. However If he doesn’t think so, his head shouldn’t be right. So there is no alternative to stop mosquito breeding and eradicate mosquitoes to survive dengue. Care should be taken to avoid any situation where water may accumulate. All types of coconut shells, car tires, broken bottles, discarded flower tubs, etc. must be removed on your own initiative. The government alone cannot find or remove the broken bottles, glasses, coconut shells, buckets, tires of 160 million people. In order to survive, one has to participate in these on one’s own initiative. Remember, mosquitoes will attack you next to your house.
