In a heart-breaking news, four members of a family have succumbed to dengue. This horrendous and spine-chilling incident was reported in Mancherial district of Telangana state. And all this happened in just 15 days. Now the grief-stricken bereaved family is in utter shock.

First he got dengue and was treated at a local hospital in Mancherial. When his condition turned serious, his family members had moved him to Karimnagar. He was died on October 16, 2019 while treating in a hospital in Karimnagar. Later, Rajagattu's grandfather Lingaiah (70) died on October 20, 2019 due to dengue during the five-day rituals of Rajagattu who had died on 16th October.

Even as the High Court and media is making hue and cry over dengue fevers and lack of preventive measures by Telangana state government and not controlling the disease and not providing necessary medical facilities to patients, this shocking and gruesome incident of dengue claiming four lives of a family stresses how badly it is affecting the people. It is high time, bureaucrats and ministers should take cognizance of dengue issues and ensure that such thing won't be repeated.
