So far this year, more than 13,000 cases of dengue fever have been documented in Rajasthan. This year, the Sawai Man Singh (SMS) hospital alone has reported 58 dengue-related deaths.
“There are four varieties of dengue virus. Dengue fever can strike a person up to four times in their lifetime. When you are infected with one type, you develop permanent immunity to that type, but immunity to other types is only temporary, lasting 3 to 6 months. If you have dengue fever again after having it once before, especially if it’s type 2, you’re more likely to get complications like shock and bleeding “Dr. Ajay Mathur, HOD, SMS hospital’s Department of Medicine, said a private media channel.
Kashish, who is seventeen years old, has been battling dengue fever for the past week. Her platelet count had plummeted dramatically and she was brought to SMS hospital two days ago. Her condition, on the other hand, is stated to be stable at the moment, but she is being monitored.
Dengue fever has spread swiftly throughout Rajasthan, affecting hundreds of people in cities such as Jaipur, Bikaner, and Barmer.
The state government had launched a 15-day dengue-free Rajasthan campaign, after which the health department assessed the situation on the ground, however the situation on the ground remains dire.
Experts say that efforts are being taken to ensure that water does not collect in coolers, kitchenware, or other vessels, which can help prevent the spread of dengue fever both inside and outside the home.
“Personal safety is also essential. You should dress appropriately and avoid exposing yourself to the environment, especially during the day, because this mosquito only bites during the day “, said Dr. Ajay Mathur.
