Noida Witnessing Steady Rise in Dengue Cases; Health Department Confirms 11 New Patients

The dengue outbreak continues to escalate in the district. The District Health Department has reported the confirmation of 11 new cases, pushing the total number of dengue patients to 85. Within the initial nine days of August, the Health Department has already verified 38 dengue cases. However, this number could potentially be higher as private hospitals might not be accurately reporting dengue cases.

Officials from the Malaria Department informed that five cases of dengue have been confirmed from the central lab of Child PGAI in Sector-30. All of these cases involve pediatric patients. Additionally, several cases are being reported from private labs. Treatment for dengue patients from Delhi and two from Ghaziabad is also being carried out in Noida. The administration has issued instructions to maintain vigilance in order to combat the rapidly spreading dengue.

As dengue cases continue to rise in the rural areas of Muradabad and Firozabad, teams will be deployed in the rural areas of Gautam Buddha Nagar as well. In this context, awareness programs will be organized in Jevar and Dadri on Thursday, followed by a meeting with ASHA workers. If there are more than two fever patients in any household, immediate information needs to be provided to the Malaria Department. On Wednesday, the Malaria Department’s team conducted an inspection in Nithari village. Upon finding larvae in a cooler at the same location where a dengue-infected child was discovered, the building owner was issued a notice.
