Lahore is in the clutches of deadly virus DENGUE. News bulletin daily breaks horrible news of dengue engulfing many innocent lives in the city of Lahore alone. Markets, schools, colleges and universities have been shutdown due to the fear of this cursed epidemic Dengue fever. Every where its only the "death" dancing around.. It feels even more horrible when you yourself are the one to lose a beloved, a blood relative.. to experience a loss that can not be recovered..
How shameful it is that our government cant even control or tackle a mosquito?a mere mosquito? And to the hell, government is importing mosquito killing chemical from India when it is present in the country in sufficient quantities. I mean what the heck? Honestly, government is equally responsible in the murder of these innocent lives. I don't know why aren't they afraid of THEIR time. Why just they have forgotten ALLAH? Why don't they think that how will they face Allah? I was so surprised to find out that Imran Khan who apparently is working for this poor nation sincerely is also busy in looting the people at such bleak times. His laboratories in Shokat Khanum were accused to charge patients with heavy fees for CBC reports. when contacted, he replied that they are not a government ruling body, so how dare govt point us out? He said that since Shokat Khanum Hospital is a Cancer hospital, cancer patients get full treatment free of cost. Dear readers, tell me does this attitude seem sane? is this justifiable? shokat khanam hospital is being run with the help of funds, zakatas and sadqas, then who has given him a right to charge patients heavily? Dengue is a fatal disease and people like Imran are busy in taking the benefits of the situation... shame on all the politicians and on the blind followers..
In 5% people dengue may be dangerous, but in other cases it is treatable. Remember prevention is better than cure. Always use a mosquito-repellent lotion, wear full sleeves and avoid capris, short shirts etc. Do not go out during maghrib and fajar times. If unfortunately you develop fever and symptoms like eye pain, head ache, and rash donot panic. Go and get yourself a CBC report. Your platelet count must not be less than 50,000. In normal healthy person platelets range from 1,50000-4,50000.
Take very good care of yourself and pray that our dear Pakistan gets free from all such shackles.Amen
