At least 652 dengue patients were admitted in the hospital on Wednesday

Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) has said, a unit will be opened in Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn And Plastic Surgery if the number of dengue patients increase.

“Our doctors will treat the dengue patients in that unit,” said DMCH’s Director, Brigadier General Dr A K M Nasir Uddin, in a conference at DMCH on Wednesday afternoon.

Dr Nasir said: “To serve the dengue patient, the Health Ministry has already ordered all doctors, nurses, and employees not to take day-offs or a leave from work place.”

“We are giving free treatment to the ones who are critical, and not admitting the ones who can be cured at home,” he added. 

The hospital director said: “Most of the dengue patients are children, and we will clear up the temporary Ansar habitat in old DMCH building for them.”
