Around 88 percent of dengue patients, who have been admitted to hospitals across the country, have returned home after recovery, due to the prompt steps taken by government. A total of 54,797 dengue patients reported to different hospitals.
The number of dengue patients was falling in hospitals across the country. The number was expected not to rise in future. The number of Dengue patients fell 7 pc in Dhaka and 5 pc outside Dhaka in the last 24 hours.
This number is declining because of various measures of the Health Department and massive awareness of the people, said the Disease Control and Line Director of DGHS Dr. Sania Tahmina at a press conference on Monday (Aug 19), local media reported.
