    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's eastern Punjab province is in the grip of a dengue epidemic with dozens of cases being reported daily at various hospitals, Xinhua reported. :whistle::whistle::whistle::whistle:

    At least 145 cases of dengue fever were reported in Lahore, the provincial capital, over the past three days. Several other cities in Punjab have also been hit, a report issued by the provincial health department said on Friday.

    A total of 1,419 dengue cases were reported in the province this year, :shocked::shocked::shocked::sad::sad::sad:of which 1,358 patients recovered.

    Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani who was in Lahore Friday offered help from the federal government to tackle the problem.

    Dengue, an acute febrile disease spread by the aedes aegypti mosquito, has been endemic in Pakistan for the past few years. It spreads most often after the rainy season in July and August when pools of standing water serve as ideal mosquito breeding grounds.

    Symptoms of dengue fever include high fever, severe body pain, itching and red spots, bleeding from nose and teeth and severe pain in the eyes.

    India needs to be careful even something like this can be utilized by terrorists as a form of biological warfare.

    LAHORE: Secretary Punjab Mineral Development Corporation, Ataullah Siddiqui died of Dengue fever Monday, Geo News reported. He was hospitalised on Friday after he was diagnosed with the virus.
    Siddiqui who joined government services in 1985 leaves behind a wife and two daughters.

    His death comes as the number of Dengue patients continues to rise across Punjab and Lahore in particular where over 3,000 cases have been reported. The virus has also claimed the lives of ten people in the province.

    Meanwhile hospitals in the province are finding it difficult to cope with the large number of Dengue cases. Emergency has been declared in all hospitals of Lahore due to the Dengue virus.

    Pakistan is importing medicine from india and china.

    Four types of dengue reported in Pakistan


    KARACHI: The recent outbreak of dengue fever confirmed the presence of all four types of dengue viral infections in Pakistan. Experts also warned that dengue could spread severely throughout the country as it has in the province of Punjab.

    This was stated by Dr. Javed Akram, the Head of Jinnah Hospital Lahore and chairman of dengue expert committee.
    Until date, officially more than 3,500 people have been infected and over a dozen have died from the recent dengue outbreak in Pakistan.

    “These are the official figures but I think the number of unreported dengue patients is more than 500, 000,”Akram told Dawn.com.

    Akram said that in the past they had warned the authorities about the worst possible outbreak of dengue fever in Pakistan but this time they seemed to have been too late. Next year, the epidemic will be even more catastrophic than it has been now, he added.

    Akram, along with others contributed a research paper about the 2008 dengue outbreak study in two hospitals of Lahore. The paper was published in 2009 in the International Journal of Infectious Disease.

    An estimated 100 million persons worldwide get infected with dengue annually, a resurging viral infection spread by the mosquito Aedes aegyptii. In Pakistan Aedes aegyptii is mainly responsible for this disease.

    Several hundred thousands of patients develop dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) — a more severe, usually fatal form in which bleeding and shock occurs.

    A study of two outbreaks in Lahore in 2008, conducted on 110 patients from two hospitals, showed more than half of them had developed the more severe form which is now confirmed by the current dengue outbreak in Punjab.

    Malik Asif Humayoun, then the head of the department of medicine at Allama Iqbal Medical College and the Jinnah Hospital, and his colleagues describe this increase in the more severe form as compared to previous years as alarming.

    Four strains of the dengue virus circulate worldwide, including South Asia, and the fatal DHF form occurs when a previously infected and cured dengue patient gets re-infected again, usually with a different strain of the virus.

    Two of these were reported in previous outbreaks in Karachi city, while a third has been reported in the Lahore outbreak of 2008. Now all four types of dengue serotypes have been confirmed in Punjab.

    “There is urgent need to have a countrywide epidemiological survey for multiple dengue serotypes (strains),” said Humayoun.

    There is also a need for larger clinical studies in Pakistan and other South Asian countries to better understand the range of infections, endemic patterns and genetic susceptibility of different populations to the dengue virus, the researchers concluded.

    Integrated Dengue Control

    Dr. Akram stressed the need of an integrated vector control strategy. He said that mosquito sprays are not sufficient as we need a multiple approach for mosquito eradication, such as biological control, Larvicide, mass awareness, quarantine for patients and travel advisory.

    “The dengue mosquito larva could survive for more than a year even in a dry place,” Akram added.

    “Public awareness is the only way to prevent dengue fever,” said Syed Salahuddin Qadri

    Qadri is an Assistant Professor of Zoology at Jamia Milia Degree College in Karachi and is currently working on a project about dengue mosquito control sponsored by the Pakistan Academy of Sciences.

    “Spray does little to control the dengue as the mosquito can be found in flush tanks, around abandoned junk on roofs of houses and even in closed underground tanks,” said Qadri.

    Qadri added that the Pakistani media did nothing for mass awareness against dengue fever.

    Qadri said that one of his colleagues, Dr Tariq, found that the drained larva of Aedes Aegyptii flourished and even appeared healthier in clear water. The mosquito can fly over 100 meters.

    Qadri urge people to investigate the mosquito habitat carefully as it is found in water from air conditions, gardens and potted plants. He said that he even found a larva of dengue mosquito in soft drink cap!

    Man you are so stupid. Dengue mosquitoes breeds in clean waters, and this Dengue epidemic shows Pakistan is economically better than Bhindia.

    Aren't all Kufar Hindu/Singh/Sikh born Dark, Stupid and Ugly-Fugly unlike pretty, fair, slim-trim, gorgeous,sweet, tender-delicate, innocent looking pakistani men (pun intended)? Now you have proved them correct!! No doubt you are Singh is King among us!!

    Again, you prove them correct in an oxymoron manner - don't you know 'pakistan may be a poor geographical boundary (though ever shrinking) but pakistanis are the richest people in the world, with the blessings of almighty Allah, where (rich pakis) do not even bother to help dieing flood victims when state of pakistan calls out for help - let the poor die aye - well soon there will be only rich pakistanis left to ponder - thanks for the blessings in disguise - the floods/earthquakes/droughts/terrorism et al'.........Man you Bhindians are the not just Kufar but even stupid!

    Why do you take such joy in the misery of others? They are still people who not so long ago were called Indians.
