The government is unable to control the rising threat of dengue fever as around 2500 infected people were brought to hospitals across Pakistan by Tuesday.
All the hospitals in Karachi have been put on alert, with careful screening of all incoming patients. The number of dengue patients in Punjab has reached 890. 18 teams are working in Lahore to control this epidemic. The role of the government comes into sharp focus in this situation. It must play its due role in eliminating this threat and helping the people survive this disease.
