Delhi NCR hospitals under pressure as dengue cases rise above 1000

The dramatic increase in dengue infections in Delhi and its environs is causing great concern among health officials, since hospitals are already running out of beds. The fact that some hospitals force patients to share beds with other patients demonstrates the seriousness of the matter.

According to a media source, patients at Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital are only assessed for beds if they have serious problems such as bleeding or platelets below 30,000. According to the study, 54 of the 220 patients hospitalised to Delhi’s Swami Dayanand Hospital had dengue fever.

Due to this sudden¬†influx of patients, the¬†hospital administration has stopped emergency surgeries to accommodate them. Because of the dengue outbreak, Noida’s Kailash Hospital has also converted a conference hall into a makeshift arrangement.
