Khammam: Dengue cases have spread to 322 villages in Khammam district. Officials identified four villages Nagulavancha, Patharlapadu, Chintakani and Basavapuram under Chintakani mandal and Jinkalagudem under Tirumalauyapalem mandal as high risk among them.

About 157 patients from these villages are suffering from dengue. About 25 persons have been undergoing treatment for dengue in Jinkalagudem village, under Tirumalayapalem mandal.

 

Rapid action teams have registered 1,973 fever cases in the district and about 971 cases were found as dengue. These patients are undergoing treatment in different government hospitals. District medical and health officer Kalavathibai claimed that nobody died due to dengue in the district. The out-patient queues in district headquarters witnessed long queues even in evening sessions.

In SC Colony in Mandalapalli, under Dammapet mandal, Bhadradri district, about 45 patients spent Rs 20 lakh so far to cure dengue.

These patients joined hospitals in Sattupalli and Aswaraopet. They joined private hospitals due to the initiative of rural medical practitioners.

The village is the best example of how dengue victims are paying crore of rupees to private hospitals.

The 30-day village plan being organised is limited to organising meetings and hearing boring speeches of local body leaders. No serious efforts toward sanitation are being made in view of the rapid spread of diseases.
