- Record of the last 10 years broken in Noida
- The number of dengue patients crosses 500
- 15 to 20 new dengue patients are receiving daily
Although the ravages of Corona still continue in the country, now dengue is also spreading. Dengue cases in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, have broken the record for the past 10 years. According to the records of the Noida Health Department, after ten years, for the first time in the district, the number of dengue patients has exceeded 500.
Surprisingly, the District Malaria Department is conducting a disease prevention campaign in collaboration with the Noida Authority and other departments. But the effect of this campaign is not visible. Let us tell you, in the same September, dengue had struck in the Gautam Budh Nagar district. In the first 30 days, 49 cases of dengue were reported in the district.
Over the past three and a half months, the health department has spent thousands of rupees spraying and nebulizing anti-larval drugs, but new cases of dengue are continually coming to the fore.
Now, in the month of October, dengue has taken on a scarier form. Every day 15-20 new dengue patients are found in Gautam Budh Nagar district. In October, 376 new dengue patients were found in the district, but on Saturday this number reached 509. So far 133 patients have also been found in the first week of November. At the same time, the government machinery claims that only one patient has died in the district.
