Mosquitoes, notorious for spreading diseases like dengue and malaria, continue to pose a threat in Kolkata due to favourable weather conditions for breeding. While the number of dengue cases has decreased since its peak in October, fresh cases are still being reported, emphasizing the need for ongoing vigilance.
As of the week ending November 19, more than 450 dengue cases were documented in the Kolkata municipal area, as indicated by a senior official from the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC). Although the numbers are lower than in October, healthcare professionals are still treating dengue patients, with some requiring hospital admission.
Amitabha Saha, Head of Critical Care at AMRI Hospitals, Mukundapur, stated that around five dengue patients are currently under treatment. He urges individuals experiencing fever for two days or more, accompanied by body aches, and headache, and without cold and cough symptoms, to undergo dengue testing.
KMC officials stress the role of weather, particularly rainfall, in influencing the incidence of dengue. The Aedes aegypti mosquito, laying its eggs in freshwater, is the carrier responsible for transmitting the dengue virus. If it rains, stagnant water provides breeding sites for mosquitoes, leading to an increase in dengue cases a few days later. The decline in cases typically follows a halt in rainfall as breeding sites dry up.
The officials emphasize the ongoing importance of eliminating potential mosquito breeding grounds. The humidity and daytime temperatures remain conducive to mosquito breeding, indicating the need for continued efforts to curb their proliferation.
