    The number of chickenpox and viral fever cases among school children, particularly those under 12 years old, has slightly increased due to the rising temperature, according to health professionals in Hyderabad. Private and government schools have reported a slight rise in viral fever and chickenpox cases compared to previous years. Students who show symptoms such as fever, cough, cold, rashes, or chickenpox are sent home immediately to prevent the spread of infection. Schools have also announced that students who are unable to take their final exams due to health issues must wait until they are cured before retaking the exam. Consultant Pediatrician and Neonatologist at BBR Super Specialty Hospital, Swamy Sandeep, stated that there has been a slight increase in chickenpox cases this year, with 35 to 40 cases reported per month in March and April. The rise in humidity is attributed to the increase. To prevent the spread of disease, people are advised to wear masks, wash their hands frequently, maintain a proper distance from an infected person, and avoid public places if they are infected. A high-protein diet and lots of fluids should also be included in the diet. Dr. Aravind, a senior Pediatrician, noted that there has been a slight increase in chickenpox cases due to the break in vaccination. Although healthy children usually do not experience complications from chickenpox, it is a highly infectious disease that spreads quickly. Parents are advised to isolate infected children to prevent further spread of the disease.
