Unexpected Surge in Tuberculosis Patients in Sambhal, Infecting Youth as Well

Sambhal, a city in India, is witnessing a continuous rise in the number of people falling ill as the summer heat intensifies. Although there was some relief on Sunday after rainfall, the effects of the scorching heat returned on Monday. The district hospital has also experienced an increase in the number of patients suffering from heat-related illnesses. On Monday, the outpatient department (OPD) of the district hospital recorded 781 patients. Senior physician Dr. Chaman Prakash revealed that the number of tuberculosis patients has been rising for several days.

Among the affected individuals, the youth seem to be more susceptible, with cases of infection being detected during testing. It was reported that four to five patients are being identified daily, and some elderly individuals are also included in these cases. Dr. Rajesh Kumar emphasized that the incidence of illness is increasing due to the summer season. The patients visiting the hospital are exhibiting symptoms such as fever and gastrointestinal problems.

Fever, which can be attributed to both the cold and heat, has become a common complaint. The heat is particularly intense, leading to an increase in stomach-related issues due to negligence in dietary habits. Additionally, there has been a rise in the number of patients suffering from itching and rashes. Prolonged exposure to the sun has resulted in the formation of skin eruptions and subsequent itching problems for individuals spending excessive time outdoors. Consequently, the issue of itching has also become a prevalent concern in the region.
