These include two children. Another patient also died of fever on Wednesday in Kursauli village of Kalyanpur. Earlier in this village, a teenager has died of fever.
Kanpur: Scrub typhus-like symptoms in patients
Health officials are calling symptoms like high fever with platelets falling to 30 thousand and respiratory system failure. Actually, it is scrub typhus disease. If it is not investigated in the city, then it is being ignored. The patients have been confirmed in the tests conducted in Delhi, but so far the physicians are ignoring the hilly areas as a disease.
People who have had dengue once, get hit more.
People who have had dengue once are more vulnerable to the other variants. It is difficult to save the life of such people when they have dengue. More care has to be taken in the treatment of such patients. Medications are given while monitoring other parameters including their platelets. Recently, many such patients have been found, in which its second variant was attacked.
The process of getting dengue patients has increased in the state. Dengue and fever are causing death not only in Firozabad, Mainpuri, Mathura but also in other parts. This disease caused by the female Aedes aegypti mosquito is increasing rapidly in different parts of the state. Medical experts say that there are four major dengue variants found in India. Dengue one, Dengue two, Dengue three and Dengue four. In Dengue I, where platelets drop with fever, in Dengue II there may be bleeding, fever, and shock. There can be fever without shock in Dengue III and fever in Dengue IV with shock and without shock.
The apprehension expressed in the research
The genetic study, published in the journal Infection Genetics and Evolution, has also raised the fear that this serious disease may have been caused by changes in its variant. A new variant of dengue is being feared this year as well.
Those who sweat more are at greater risk
It has been revealed in various research reports that mosquitoes are more like people with excess carbon dioxide, lactic acid. People who exercise more or do more hard work have an excess of carbon dioxide and lactic acid in their sweat. Due to the smell of sweat of such people, these mosquitoes come more near them.
What do experts say
People who have had dengue once should be more careful. Once dengue occurs, antibodies remain in them for two to three years. But in the meantime, if another variant of dengue attacks, then the risk of the patient’s life increases. Recently, many such patients have been found, who was admitted in critical condition. Every parameter of such patients has to be treated keeping in mind.
