Woman dies of dengue in Satkhira

A housewife died of mosquito-borne disease dengue in Sadar upazila early Friday.

The deceased was identified as Shahanara Khatun, 37, wife of Khalilur Rahman of Choygharia village in the upazila.

Dr Abu Shaheen, Satkhira Civil Surgeon, said Shahanara was admitted to Sadar Hospital after being diagnosed with dengue on August 18.

On Thursday night, the physicians referred her to Khulna Medical College Hospital following deterioration of her condition but she died around 1 am while being taken to Khulna.

Some 292 patients infected with dengue are taking treatment at different hospitals and clinics in the district.

According to the government, 59,592 patients infected with dengue  were hospitalised across the country and 53,398 of them discharged after treatment since the beginning of this year.

Currently, 6,147 dengue patients are undergoing treatment at different hospitals and clinics, according to the Health Emergency Operation Centre and Control Room of the Directorate General of Health Services.

The government has so far confirmed the deaths of 47 people but unofficial estimates suggest the death toll is much higher.
