Dengue (signal picture)
In the era of Coronavirus pandemic, cases of flu and dengue are also increasing rapidly in the country. Experts say that the natural immunity of people who have been infected with corona has decreased, so the risk of flu and dengue has increased significantly. Those who have recovered from COVID need to be more cautious.
Dr Yudhveer Singh of the Critical Care Department of AIIMS, New Delhi said that this time dengue is seen in a different form. Initial symptoms appear normal in patients and then suddenly become very serious condition. The cases of dengue and flu are increasing because the immunity of people has decreased after corona. Due to this, they are easily falling prey to these diseases. Children, young and old are all getting infected with these seasonal diseases this time. In such a situation it is very important to protect yourself. It is very important to consult a doctor immediately if you see any symptoms of dengue or flu.
People who recovered from COVID remained alert
Dr Yudhveer told that those who have recovered from COVID need to be more cautious. If such people get dengue or flu then it can prove fatal for them. Senior doctor Dr Vijay Kumar says that to avoid dengue, you can easily keep mosquitoes away by keeping your surroundings clean.
