As the coronavirus cases have been increasing and three allied hospitals are completely filled with COVID-19 patients that is why the district administration has not yet established any wards for the dengue patients.
In District Headquarters Hospital (DHQ), Benazir Bhutto Hospital (BBH), and Holy Family Hospital (HFH), the district administration have not reserved any wards for the dengue patients.
As per some sources, the administration is so engaged with the COVID-19 situation therefore they didn’t pay any attention to a possible dengue virus rampant in the garrison city.
This is the reason the administration has not yet established dengue wards in these three allied hospitals in the garrison city. Although the anti-dengue surveillance teams are making efforts to recover larvae mosquito from different areas of the city as quickly as possible.
The surveillance teams are ordered by the Anwarul Haq Rawalpindi Deputy Commissioner (DC) to impose fines, register cases, and destroy the dengue mosquitos quickly.
As per a survey report prepared by a third party, the officials seem displeased on larvae recovery.
Strict action to be taken against the responsible teams and also against those departments which failed to perform their duties persistently announced the Deputy Commissioner.
There were some sources that confirmed the unavailability of the wards for possible dengue patients. Although the wards will be established by the mid of July.
