Gonda. Along with the viral fever in the villages, now the outbreak of dengue has also started spreading rapidly. From government hospitals to private hospitals, the number of patients suffering from fever is increasing continuously.
On Monday, two new dengue infected patients were admitted to the district hospital along with viral fever. On the other hand, the Health Department remains completely indifferent regarding the investigation of dengue. Dengue patients are also not being confirmed due to lack of testing.
On Monday, Sudhir Tiwari and Phoolkala, residents of Laxmanpur in Kharagpur, have also been admitted to the dengue ward of the district hospital after high fever and symptoms similar to dengue. However, due to lack of investigation, dengue has not been confirmed in these two patients so far.
In the OPD of the district hospital, every day four hundred to five hundred people suffering from viral fever are coming for treatment. In the children’s ward alone, 21 children suffering from fever are admitted.
There is a huge shortage of doctors to treat such a large number of patients coming for treatment in the district hospital. Due to non-appointment of regular doctors, treatment is being done by doctors hired on contract. There is also a shortage of pediatric doctors.
Despite the approval of 44 posts of doctors in the district hospital, only 23 doctors are posted. In such a situation, in view of the increasing number of patients, the health department is facing a big challenge. Chief Medical Superintendent Dr. Ghanshyam Singh says that the government has been made aware of the shortage of doctors.
Unless doctors are appointed by the government, this shortcoming will not be removed. He told that the beds of all the wards are full. Patients suffering from fever or other symptoms are also being admitted to the dengue ward itself.
