New Delhi The country has hardly faced such difficult times. Many diseases have attacked us at once. The body has not yet been released from Corona that Nipah, Dengue and mysterious fever have increased the concern. Amidst the threat of a third wave of Covid-19 in the country, ‘mysterious fever’ has claimed hundreds of lives in UP. Day by day its havoc is increasing in the state. At the same time, after Corona and Zika, Nipah virus has started spreading in Kerala. This virus spreads from animals to humans. On the other hand, there have also been reports of increasing outbreak of dengue across the country. The current situation is really challenging in terms of health and well being. India is witnessing crisis on many fronts. The havoc of Corona in the country has not stopped yet. Not only are new cases of infection still coming, but deaths are also happening due to the virus. On Monday, 38,948 new cases of corona were reported in India in a single day. After this, the number of corona infected in the country increased to 3,30,27,621. At the same time, after the death of 219 more people due to infection, the number of people who lost their lives due to this virus increased to 4,40,752. This clearly means that the corona is not over and precaution is needed. More worry is about Kerala. The outbreak of corona has suddenly increased in the state. Last day (Sunday) 74 people died due to infection in the state. At the same time, 26,701 new cases were reported. The orgy of Corona continues in Maharashtra as well and people are losing their lives. On Sunday itself, 67 people died due to this virus in the state.

People under the age of 18 have not even participated in this vaccination program yet.
nipah new headache
Nipah has also caused a headache in Kerala, which is battling the havoc of Corona. A 12-year-old boy was killed in Kozhikode district on Sunday morning. He was confirmed to be infected with the virus in a sample sent to the National Institute of Virology. It is a deadly virus that spreads from animals to humans. The entire administrative staff has been shocked after the death of a child due to infection. Its symptoms are also similar to the symptoms of corona infection.
Mysterious fever is taking life
At the same time, UP is caught in solving the mystery of ‘mysterious fever’ these days. For the last one week, the outbreak of mysterious fever has increased in many districts of UP. Especially in Firozabad, it has seen a lot of havoc. There are reports of more than 100 deaths in the state. Mainly it has victimized children. Viral fever and dengue have also spread rapidly in the state. Now politics has started heating up regarding this. Akhilesh Yadav, the president of the main opposition party in the state and former CM Akhilesh Yadav, has attacked the Yogi government on this. He has said that children are dying of viral fever and dengue and Yogi Adityanath has been making false claims that everything is fine. At the same time, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan has said that the central team has found that most of the cases of viral fever and deaths among children in Firozabad district of Uttar Pradesh are due to dengue. They have reported that some cases are due to scrub typhus and leptospirosis.
Dengue havoc in Delhi, Maharashtra too
In the capital Delhi and Maharashtra too, seasonal diseases including dengue, malaria have wreaked havoc. At least 124 cases of dengue have been reported in Delhi so far this year. This has come to the fore in a report released by the Municipal Corporation on Monday. According to the report, the number of dengue cases during the period January 1 to September 4 is the highest this year since 2018. In the year 2018, 137 cases of dengue were reported during the same period. Dengue mosquitoes breed in clean and stagnant water. At the same time, malaria mosquitoes also breed in dirty water. On the other hand, there has been a manifold increase in dengue cases in Mumbai this year as compared to August last year. Dengue cases were just 10 in August last year which increased to over 130 in the same month this year. In view of this, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday deployed a drone to sanitize the Dhobi Ghat area of the city to prevent the spread of monsoon-related diseases like malaria and dengue. Similarly, the commercial capital of the country has seen nearly 3,000 cases of malaria, over 275 cases of gastroenteritis, over 35 cases of leptospirosis and hepatitis, and over a dozen cases of H1N1, but no deaths have been reported.
