‘False alarm, there’s no dengue!’


Special Assistant to chief minister for health Khawaja Salman Rafiq has said the seven-year-old girl Maryam admitted in a private hospital the previous day was not a dengue patient. He said he reached the hospital immediately on the CM’s instruction and after consultations with the doctor he found out that the patient was not a dengue victim. He said the patient was shifted to Jinnah Hospital after the tests. He asked the private hospitals to immediately inform the Dengue Cell or the Dengue Experts Advisory Group of the Health Department if a dengue patient comes to them.
