Dengue Prevalence: Upscale territories increasingly inclined

Dengue diseases and Aedes mosquito pervasiveness are higher in zones with an excessive number of multistory structures and glossy foundations embellished with enhancing greeneries, in spite of the fact that there are a couple of special cases, investigation of two government reviews appears.

Take Baridhara, in Dhaka North City Corporation. It is one of the upscale regions in the capital and home to most outside missions. In any case, hatchlings nearness in structures is high here, and 50-75 individuals from this territory have taken treatment for dengue from May 1 to August 2.

Interestingly, Gabtoli, an inadequately kept up region occupied generally by low-pay individuals, has so far observed 25-50 individuals taking dengue treatment during a similar period. No Aedes hatchlings was found here during the review a month ago.

In Baridhara, Aedes hatchlings was found in 50-70 percent structures during the overview done by the wellbeing directorate. It is nearly the equivalent in Banani, Gulshan-1 and Gulshan-2.

In Dhaka south, regions, for example, Meradia, Goran, Sayedabad, Muradpur and Hazaribagh have seen less patients admitted to medical clinics than Lalmatia, Segunbagicha,

Malibagh and Moghbazar have.

In the capital, Moghbazar has been the most exceedingly awful influenced, with at any rate 137 dengue patients taking treatment.

Malibagh, alongside Moghbazar, saw the second most noteworthy number of patients – 75 to 100. As high as 40 percent structures in this area are swarmed with Aedes hatchlings.

The nearness of hatchlings is comparable in Segunbagicha, secretariat territory, Dhaka University region, Sabujbagh and Rajarbagh, Narinda, Tikatuli and Gandaria.

MM Aktaruzzaman, program administrator of Communicable Disease Control at the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), said their study group examined under-development structures, semi-organized one-and two-story structures, multistory structures just as abandoned lofts.

Convergence of Aedes hatchlings was high in structures where individuals put away water for tasteful purposes, he said.

“This sort of mosquito needs clean water for generation,” he stated, including that numerous pads in upscale territories had unused restrooms with chests where female Aedes mosquitoes laid eggs.

The group discovered hatchlings in disposed of tires, water on the floors, plastic pails, ceramics/earth pots, blossom containers and plate and metal jars with water put away in them.

The overview on the grouping of patients was finished examining data around 3,000 patients who took treatment at 12 open and 35 private emergency clinics over the capital from May 1 to August 2. The Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) did this overview.

The overview on the mosquito hatchlings was finished by the DGHS from July 17-27, covering 100 neighborhoods of 98 wards in the two city partnerships in Dhaka.

Aktaruzzaman suggested further examinations for better comprehension of mosquito commonness and disease.


Discoveries likewise demonstrate that most dengue patients who took treatment are matured somewhere in the range of 5 and 35, with the quantity of male patients a lot higher contrasted with female patients.

Understudies and occupation holders are at the most astounding danger as they stay outside home toward the beginning of the day and night hours, when Aedes mosquitos are known to chomp, said Kankar Ghosh, a disease transmission specialist at Dhaka Shishu Hospital.

These mosquitos more often than not chomp individuals two hours after dawn and two hours before nightfall, and individuals of these two gatherings stay outside home at these hours, he said. “For instance, an officegoer leaves home before 8:00am and returns after dusk, which means he stays outside home at hazardous hours.”

Furthermore, despite the fact that individuals can keep their homes clean, they need to depend on the experts or the city organizations for cleaning workplaces and instructive foundations, he said.

“The quantity of diseases would descend significantly if youngsters quit going outside their home at the dangerous hours,” he noted.

The examination discovered 56 percent youngsters matured 5-11 were contaminated from schools, he said.

HM Nazmul Ahsan, partner teacher at Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital, said understudies were entirely defenseless the same number of schools, universities and training focuses were not cleaned appropriately, a motivation behind why understudies are being contaminated there.
