Ten patients have been identified as suffering from dengue fever, over the last three months in Khulna.

The affected patients were treated in three hospitals and one private clinic—one chose to travel to Dhaka for better treatment.

"The Civil Surgeon’s Office has formed 116 medical teams in nine upazilas of Khulna to prevent dengue fever," said Khulna's Deputy Civil Surgeon Dr Md Atiyar Rahman Sheikh.

In July and August, three dengue patients were identified in Khulna Medical College (KMC) Hospital. They left the hospital after receiving 5-6 days of treatment.

A KMC Hospital doctor, Dr Gopal Biswas, said: "A teenager named Alvi, 17, from Gopalganj received treatment here for five days after being affected by dengue fever. After recovering, he went to Dhaka for better treatment."

"Two more, including Mithun Pal from Jessore, were admitted with dengue fever on August 28. After receiving treatment for five days, they recovered and left the hospital."

Sources from Gazi Medical College and Hospital told the Dhaka Tribune, a worker named Ripon Mina, from the Modhhodanga area, once inflicted with dengue, received hospital treatment  for six days.

According to sources from Khulna City Medical College and Hospital, a man named Sobahani Chakma was admitted there for dengue and left after receiving treatment for six days.

KMC Hospital Professor SM Kamal said five dengue patients were admitted to his private clinic between July and August. All returned home after recovering.

Sources from the Khulna City Corporation (KCC) Health department claim a campaign –73 health workers-strong– has started to eradicate mosquitoes and keep the environment clean.
