Dengue Cases Surge in Lucknow with 15 New Reports

On Saturday, Lucknow, the capital city of the state, reported a concerning spike in dengue cases with 15 new infections, marking the highest single-day count this year.

Distribution of New Cases

According to the health department’s data, the new dengue cases were distributed across various areas of Lucknow:

  • Three cases were reported from Indira Nagar.
  • Five cases emerged from Chandernagar.
  • Four cases were identified on NK Road.
  • Two cases were reported from Aliganj.

Thankfully, the health department confirmed that these newly infected individuals are in stable condition and are currently recovering at home. Yogesh Raghuvanshi, the district health education officer, provided this reassurance.

Preventive Measures Taken

In response to the rising cases, health teams sprang into action. They visited a total of 509 households to inspect for any potential mosquito-breeding sites. During their inspections, they identified and issued notices at six locations where mosquito larvae were found.

Dr. Abhishek Shukla, secretary general of the Association of International Doctors, stressed the importance of mosquito control and prevention. He highlighted that mosquito breeding can occur even with a small amount of stagnant water, emphasizing the need for residents to eliminate any such water sources from their homes and surroundings.

Cumulative Dengue Cases in Lucknow and the State

With this recent surge, Lucknow has now reported over 150 dengue cases this year alone. Moreover, the state has recorded approximately 500 dengue cases in total.

Ritu Srivastava, the district malaria officer, urged residents to responsibly dispose of items and avoid littering in public spaces, including the open dumping of empty or used coconut shells or cans. These efforts are crucial in curbing the spread of dengue, a mosquito-borne disease.
