Ranchi: The weather pattern has changed in the state.
People are feeling cold in the morning and evening.
Due to drop in temperature, the number of patients suffering from viral fever and cold has increased.
The minimum temperature in some parts of the state has reached 15 degrees.
With the change in weather, the number of patients suffering from cold, cough, viral fever and malaria has increased.
This year, compared to last year, throat infection patients are being reported in greater numbers.
After mild pain and sore throat, patients are reaching the hospital with severe unbearable pain.
This pain is increasing and turning into fever.
Despite continuous treatment for seven to eight days, the sore throat, pain and fever are not getting cured.
RIMS physician Dr. Binde Kumar and paediatrician Dr. Rajeev Mishra said that the number of patients in RIMS OPD has increased in the last few days.
There has been an increase of about 30 percent in patients.
In both the departments, patients are arriving with symptoms of fever not getting cured even after 7-10 days.
The patient’s immunity is breaking so much that he doesn’t even have the courage to walk.
In some patients, even the medicines to cure fever, body ache and cold are not working.
Dr. Binde said that the patient is being advised to get examined in OPD.
After investigation, apart from dengue, infection and typhoid are being confirmed in the patients.
In typhoid, people suffer from fever, headache, sore throat, pain in muscles and joints, stomach pain and dry cough.
After a few days, the temperature reaches about 103 to 104°, remains high for the next 10 to 14 days, and returns to normal during the fourth week after symptoms begin.
Right now this situation is being seen in patients.
