The epicenter of the outbreak is in Firozabad district, where nearly 50 people have died, including at least 32 children, as well as 12 deaths in Mathura and eight in Mainburi.
Symptoms of the disease:
- High temperature.
- Sudden drop in blood platelet count.
- Severe dehydration of the body.
State Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said special medical teams were dispatched to the areas where the outbreak was reported, while samples of patients' blood were being tested.
Some doctors believe that the talk is about an outbreak of dengue fever in its chronic and severe form.
This disease is spread by mosquitoes.
India is currently experiencing the rainy season; Mosquitoes and midges are increasing in a very large number, and dengue fever is a viral infection, transmitted by mosquito bites, and spreads in Southeast Asia.
According to the World Health Organization, there is no specific treatment for dengue fever, and vaccines against it can only be given to people who have already had a fever at least once.
