This is exactly the sort of dedication and attention that the current dengue epidemic requires

While dengue has undeniably wreaked havoc all over the nation, with record numbers of people being infected and even deaths occurring as a result of the disease, it is good to know that, throughout the entire ordeal, our doctors have been trying their absolute best to cure those afflicted.

On the first day of Eid-Ul-Azha, two new dengue wards were inaugurated at Dhaka’s Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College (ShSMC) to serve the dangerously increasing number of dengue patients. 

This is exactly the sort of dedication and attention that the current dengue epidemic requires, and we applaud our doctors and the administration for recognizing just how a big a threat this is.

Make no mistake, our nation has not seen an outbreak of dengue of this scope before, and as such, requires any and all measures that the government can take in order to both contain it and cure existing patients.

We are already aware of the various containment measures that the government is formulating for future outbreaks, such as the use of sterile mosquitoes to bring down the population of the aedes sub-species. But while such measures are likely to come to fruition in the near future, we need more dedicated resources to contain the spread of dengue in the here and now.

To that end, a comprehensive drive to spread awareness of the importance of retaining a hygienic environment throughout the nation, especially the cities, is of the utmost importance.

We salute all those doctors who sacrificed the comfort of the Eid holidays to tackle this national emergency.
