| Tuesday | 22nd October, 2019
Tribune News ServiceAmritsar, October 21This is the time of the year when cases of dengue start receding, but around 132 persons have tested positive for the disease so far this season.
For the purpose of official dengue count, only those patients who have tested positive at the labs of Government Medical College and the Civil Hospital are considered.
The patients diagnosed with the diseases by private labs and under treatment at private hospitals are officially not considered dengue patients unless their test reports have been reconfirmed from government laboratories.
“Even if a patient does not test positive for dengue at a government lab, but has tested positive for any other virus at a private lab, he needs attention.
For arguments’ sake, let us believe that he is not a dengue patient.
