The Health Department of Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), taking serious note of dozens of complaints, has acted tough and warned of strictest action against those hospitals and clinics that have been found creating a scare among patients by diagnosing their disease as dengue. Moreover, taking advantage of increasing number of dengue patients in the city, the hospitals and clinics have been found holding the patients to ransom in the name of dengue. These hospitals are spreading a scare in city by directly giving wide publicity in newspapers.
The Health Department has directed all the hospitals and clinics to send serum samples of dengue or any other infectious disease patients to Malaria and Filaria Department of NMC in Mahal. For more information, Malaria and Filaria Officer can be contacted on phone number 8600167836.
The NMC has warned that if any more complaints from patients are received by it, a strict action will be taken against the concerned hospitals and clinics, said a press release issued by Deputy Director (Health).
