AIR PIC
The dengue outbreak in Bangladesh continues unabated as the number of people infected with dengue this year reached almost 25,000 across Bangladesh till Sunday. According to DGHS, the death toll due to dengue has gone up to 18 though reports coming in from various parts of the country indicate a much higher number.

Government has stepped up efforts to control dengue in the country. According to the Directorate General of Drug Administration (DGDA), a total of 368,200 NS1 test kits were imported between July 31 to August 3. Number of beds for dengue patients in various hospitals in Dhaka have also been increased to accommodate new patients.

In the meanwhile, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Sunday conducted search at the offices of the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) to investigate allegations of corruption in the import of insecticide.

The opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Sunday alleged that the government is now trying to import ‘banned’ mosquito-killing medicines after procuring ineffective insecticides. BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said that the government has failed to deal with the dengue outbreak.
