Dengue Death Toll Surpasses 1,000 in Bangladesh

Dhaka: In Bangladesh, the toll of dengue fever deaths has exceeded 1,000 this year, marking it as the deadliest year in the nation’s history for mosquito-borne diseases.

According to international news agencies, Bangladesh is grappling with its most severe dengue outbreak on record, with over 1,000 deaths and nearly 209,000 infections reported in 2023.

This year’s toll is almost four times higher than the previous year, which saw 281 dengue-related deaths. Hospitals are struggling to accommodate the growing number of patients experiencing symptoms such as high fever, joint pain, and vomiting. There’s also a shortage of intravenous fluids.

The outbreak has not only affected urban areas but is spreading to rural regions, raising concerns among health officials. The situation is dire, with families desperately seeking medical help for their loved ones in overcrowded hospitals across the country.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the issue of climate change is a major factor causing mosquito-borne diseases like dengue to spread more rapidly and over larger areas.
