Islamabad: Dengue went out of control in Islamabad as over 200 dengue affected patients have been admitted in the federal public hospitals, sources said on Friday.

These patients are admitted in Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims), Poly Clinic Hospital and CDA Hospital.

The sources said that the increase in dengue cases is a result of poor vaccination and awareness campaigns of the local administration. It is pertinent to mention here that parts of Islamabad, including Sector G-7, are under dengue attack as hundreds of residents in these areas were suffering high fever.

According to details, as many as 86 patients are admitted in PIMS, 50 in Poly Clinic and 40 CDA hospitals. Besides, 150 dengue affected patients are under treatment in different private hospitals in the capital city.

PIMS Spokesperson Dr Waseem Khawaja when contacted said influx of dengue patients is alarming for various reasons. He was feared that the situation can be out of control if timely measures to control the virus were not taken.

The spokesperson advised people to cover their hands and feet in the evening and morning times when they visit in open atmosphere. He also advised people ensure spare in room and keep rooms windows closed.
