16 new dengue cases were confirmed by Bangladesh in the 24 hours.

All of the new patients were spotted in Dhaka, according to the Directorate General of Health Services.

Seventy-three dengue cases, including 69 in the capital, are currently being treated at various hospitals across the country.

The DGHS has recorded 479 cases of dengue fever and 406 recoveries so far this year. According to the government, no one has died as a result of the mosquito-borne viral sickness.

Dengue fever was first detected in Bangladesh in 2000, killing 93 people. It is a common cause of serious disease and death in many Asian and Latin American countries. The number of fatalities has practically halved in just three years.

However, 105 dengue patients died in 2021, with 95 of them in the Dhaka division.

Dengue fever is a disease that can be found all over the world in tropical and subtropical climates, primarily in urban and semi-urban areas.

Dengue fever is a threat to roughly half of the world’s population, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Up to 400 million people are infected with dengue every year, with over 100 million becoming unwell and 40,000 dying from severe dengue.

Due to the 4 different dengue viruses, an individual can be infected up to 4 times throughout their lifetime. Symptoms include vomiting, aches, nausea, pains, and a rash.

“There is not one specific treatment for dengue fever or severe dengue. Severe dengue mortality rates are reduced to less than 1% when disease progression is detected early and patients have access to professional medical care.” So says the World Health Organization.
