‘Unknown fever’ in Firozabad; 12 other children succumbed to his injuries

The number of people suffering from “unknown fever” in the Firozabad district of Uttar Pradesh is reported to be increasing again. Twelve more children have died of fever in the past 24 hours, health officials said. In addition, 68 people, including 40 children, died of fever in some parts of western Uttar Pradesh last week. In addition to Firozabad, undiagnosed fever has also been reported in Agra, Mathura, Mainpuri, Ita and Kasganj districts. The health sector in the state faces more challenges as the presence of the unknown fever has also increased during the outbreak of the Kovid epidemic. Symptoms of the flu include high fever, dehydration, and a sudden drop in platelet count, but it is not yet known what type of fever it is. “The health department is trying to trace the source of the unknown fever,” said Hansraj Singh, a medical superintendent in Firozabad. However, the discovery of dengue symptoms in some of the dead has raised further concerns. Firozabad MLA Manish Azija said the situation in the districts was “worrying” due to flooding and poor sanitation. Unidentified fever is more prevalent in rural areas of Uttar Pradesh. A team from the health department arrived in the village with medicines, but some of these patients were transferred to Agra and other cities due to the lack of adequate hospital facilities. At the same time, the exact number of deaths in private hospitals and homes in rural areas is unclear.

The Times of India reported on the tragic life of Vinod Kumar, a native of Sekhpur in Firozabad, who lost his four-year-old daughter. That says it. “My four-year-old daughter has had a high fever for a few days. We admitted her to a private hospital for lack of bed. However, in addition to the high fever, he died on Saturday due to a low platelet count. ‘ Meanwhile, the Chief Medical Superintendent (CMS) of Firozabad Medical College, Dr. SK Hansraj Singh said. He said the children would take at least two weeks to recover and therefore the number of beds would increase.

Health Department with precautionary measures
After detecting the symptoms of malaria and dengue, the health department has asked people to be vigilant and see a doctor instead of treating themselves. Medical Director (CMO) Dr. Sunil Sharma said that all ANM (Auxiliary Nurse Midlife) employees and Asha workers have been instructed to constantly monitor the area. He added that patients with undiagnosed fever symptoms were also asked to report to relevant health department officials at community health centers and primary health centers. In addition, the CMO said that anyone with symptoms of malaria should be screened without hesitation in government hospitals, including community health centers and primary health centers. Sharma said that testing and treatment would be provided free of charge in all government hospitals.
