50-bed ward set up for dengue patients at Kath

MANSEHRA: The district administration has set up another 50-bed isolation ward in the King Abdullah Teaching Hospital to better cope with the influx of dengue patients.

The deputy commissioner Dr. Qasim Ali Khan told reporters here on Friday that cases of dengue fever are still being reported across the district and that isolation wards have been set up in rural and technical health facilities across the district to provide better health care to patients. “We ran the fumigation spray to suppress the mosquito-borne larvae to reduce the rate of cases,” said Dr. Qasim.

The official said that although medical experts predicted an end to the dengue virus with the onset of rains this current winter, the district administration is expanding all possible help to deal with the current situation.
