276 Dengue Cases Identified In Bhubaneswar

Bhubaneswar:27/7/21: A total of 276 dengue patients were identified in Bhubaneswar by yesterday out of a total of 427 identified so far in the State, informed Director of Public Health Dr. Niranjan Mishra.

Mishra said that dengue is a disease caused by dengue viruses transmitted through the Aedes mosquito.

“Once parasite load has increased in a place it will remain till its lifecycle is completed despite taking all control measures. Control measures can prevent the breeding of new mosquitoes but the effect of existing mosquitoes will remain for about one to one and half months,” said Dr. Mishra.

The Director of Public Health said that it is not a factor to be worried about since the number is restricted to 15-20 cases per day.

He said if rainwater remains stagnant in any place for over 7 days in a place it will help in the breeding of mosquitoes.

“We are requesting everyone to remove water accumulated in the periphery of your house every 7 days.

Commissioner of Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) Sanjay Singh while admitting that cases of dengue have been reported from different areas, denied having information on any death due to the disease in the city.

The Municipal Commissioner informed that various measures are being taken by the BMC along with the Health Department.

“Door to door awareness campaign to sensitize people on dengue is being undertaken. Wherever a source is detected, action is being taken for its removal,” said Singh.
