Dengue fever in India causes alarm

| No Comments

India is facing an epidemic as dengue fever threatens millions of people in the region, the New York Times reported.

Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne illness that the New York Times calls an endemic in half of the globe.

However, the Indian Express reported that doctors in India have it under control. "...Certainly it is not life threatening and we have saved six patients in the ICU and several others are being treated for dengue in the ward," said Dr. Rajesh Gadia, consulting physician at KEM Hospital.

Gadia also told the Indian Express that patients with dengue fever do not need to be admitted to the hospital; the illness can be treated at home.
