Four patients suffering from dengue have been found in Kanchanpur district.
The disease was found in four persons, who returned home from India on completion of their employment. They have returned home after treatment at Mahakali Zonal Hospital, said vector controller at the District Public Health Office, Hemraj Joshi.
The disease was diagnosed in them from mid-July to mid-October.
Joshi said, “We have got the information that more than six dengue-infected persons from the southern part of the district underwent treatment at Kailali-based Seti Zonal Hospital.”
Dengue spreads from the bite of the female mosquito, Aedes aegypti. Fever and body pain, among others, are the symptoms of dengue.
He said that a campaign has been launched at Belauri and Punarbas municipalities to destroy the mosquito larvae to save people from dengue.
