Hyderabad: Aerbo virus which are the cause of viral fevers has adapted to the changing climate and environment due to which it is now both strong and debilitating. The viral fevers in the state have shown that the affected human body’s immune system is being aggressively triggered.

Dr K. Narsimulu, senior government professor of medicine explained, “The immune system is to respond to the presence of virus in the body. But in these fever cases, we have found that the response of the immune system is very aggressive. This could be because the virus has mutated. The aggression of the immune system is harmful to the body as it leads to damage within the body systems and that leads to complications.”

 

The viral fevers which would otherwise subside in three days are taking five days or more in some patients.

To add to this people are giving up on water and food which is dangerous. Keeping the body hydrated and having small portions of food is very important for the body to fight the viral load.

Dr Satish Ghanta, senior paediatrician explained, “The immune response observed in children has led to complications in five per cent of dengue cases being treated in the city. Such cases have led to deaths.” The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation have collected samples of the virus and sent them to the Institute of Virology in Pune to understand if there is a mutation in the virus.
