The health minister said 75 percent of the patients admitted to hospitals in the city have come from villages. Corona infection has increased 5 to 6 times due to visiting villages on Eid.

Noting that dengue has created a new crisis amid the Corona situation, he said the number of dengue patients in the hospital is increasing every day. Many dengue patients come to the hospital and are at risk of corona infection. Considering this delicate situation, plans are being made to set up a specific hospital for dengue patients.
