    In Hyderabad, doctors are warning about an increase in dengue cases due to the monsoon season. The Health department has issued guidelines for people to follow during this time. Cases of dengue have been reported in various places like Kukatpally, Toopran, and Kamareddy. The virus has evolved, making it more dangerous after Covid.

    Parents are advised to watch for warning signs in their children, such as fever, nausea, body pains, headache, and falling white blood cell count. If these symptoms worsen, it could indicate severe dengue which requires immediate medical attention. Giving paracetamol and ensuring good intake of liquids is recommended.
