Continuous rainfall increases number of dengue cases in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: Continuous rainfall over the past few days has sent Dengue numbers soaring in Hyderabad, doctors said on Monday.

“There are a lot of Chikungunya and Dengue cases and continuous rain has given way to viral flu,” said a doctor at a local hospital, Doctor Shankar.

He added that the stagnant water has led to mosquito breeding, thus, further aggravating the problem.

One of the patients at a hospital said many people have been complaining of health issues due to the weather change.

“My child is suffering from fever from the past one week, people are unable to use roads due to severe waterlogging and there is heavy traffic,” said a resident.
