GURGAON: A 30-year-old man from Mahendergarh succumbed to dengue and multi-organ dysfunction at a city hospital on Tuesday, the state’s second fatality due to the viral illness this season.
Last year, the state recorded 18 dengue deaths, the highest since 2015 when the mosquito-borne infection claimed 13 lives. The first dengue death this season — a 70-year-old man — was reported in Nuh.
The patient who succumbed on Tuesday was diagnosed with severe dengue shock in a hospital in Mahendergarh on August 15. He was transferred to a Gurgaon hospital on August 18. According to the hospital treating him, his condition remained very critical. “He was put on ventilator support but succumbed on Tuesday morning,” an official said.
There are currently 49 dengue patients admitted to hospitals across the state. Haryana has reported 772 dengue cases this season so far, with 76 new cases added on Tuesday. Rohtak has the highest number of cases (121 this season), followed by Jind (101), Yamunanagar (87) and Rewari (79).
Gurgaon has reported 62 dengue cases so far, with two new cases on Tuesday. Explaining how dengue can be fatal, Gurgaon chief medical officer (CMO) Virender Yadav said: “Dengue death is caused by hemorrhagic shock. In cases of a severe dengue infection, the blood vessels are damaged and the number of platelets in the bloodstream drops.”
