The reports of widespread vector-borne diseases is sending shivers in city. Private and Government hospitals are full with patients with viral fever. While people having severe fever are being admitted as ‘in patients’, those having mild fever, headache and feverish symptoms are being treated as ‘out patients’ as hospitals do not have adequate beds to accommodate them.
According to doctors, this year, there is an increase in viral cases when compared to last year. “Usually, we get many patients with fever by the end of May till July. This year, however, the number of cases has gone up,” doctors from Brindavan Hospital and Shanthaveri Gopalagowda Hospitals said.
