New Delhi/ Nagpur: Dengue, a dreaded fever, is spreading in the national capital like an epidemic as hundreds of cases are admitted in hospitals every day. According to media reports, two more deaths were recorded on Tuesday due to dengue though Delhi government at present has not confirmed any death by dengue.
The people of Delhi are resorting to home-made remedies to fight against dengue, rather than relying on allopathic treatment. The ‘goat milk’ and juice of ‘papaya leaves’ are being used to ward off dengue, as it is recommended by Ayurveda. As a result, the cost of goat milk has shot up due to growing demand, and it is being sold out at the rate of Rs 2000 per litre while its cost in ordinary situation was Rs 30-40 per litre. Similarly, the papaya juice is selling exorbitant Rs 300 per glass in Delhi.
According to Ayurveda, the goat milk and papaya increase the plate lets in the blood, said the sources.
