UP residents die from lack of adequate facilities: Mayawati

BSP President Mayawati

Bahujan Samaj party leader Mayawati on Thursday expressed concern over the dengue epidemic in Uttar Pradesh, accusing many patients of dying for lack of adequate housing in public hospitals.

Firozabad district is grappling with an outbreak of dengue fever and viral fever that has claimed 55 lives in the past two weeks. Several cases have also been reported in the nearby towns of Mathura, Agra and Mainpuri. So far, 15 people have died in Mathura.

She tweeted, “In the midst of the corona pandemic in UP, the outbreak of dengue and other mysterious fever has engulfed almost the entire state at a very fast pace. Due to lack of proper arrangements in government hospitals, many patients are dying which is a matter of concern”.

Mayawati's comments came as Uttar Pradesh saw cases of dengue fever amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Union Health Minister Bharati Pravin Pawar said in a written response to Rajya Sabha that health is a matter of the state and that Union states and territories regularly report the number of cases and deaths to the center.
More than 30 cases of dengue have been reported so far in Meerut, officials said on  Wednesday. Among the COVID-19 cases in Uttar Pradesh, an increase in viral fever cases in children has also been reported in several hospitals in Lucknow.
