A serious threat to people of chakwal, 7 test positive for dengue in Chakwal

CHAKWAL, Sept 16: Seven people have tested positive while 33 are suspected of dengue in Chakwal, Executive District Officer Health Dr. Nasir Mehmood told Dawn on Friday.
“The majority of the suspected are those who had traveled to Lahore and other affected areas during Eid holidays and contracted the virus there,” EDO Dr. Nasir maintained. However, unlike last year, the situation seems far better and under control.
“We are doing our best to create awareness among the masses by distributing pamphlets, holding walks and through media,” he maintained. He said that health department had fumigated the vulnerable areas during spring season.
“We have tried our best to eliminate the mosquitoes in their breeding stage by fogging,” he claimed.
He said that a force of 1,227 personnel of health department is straining hard to combat the viral disease.  “We have 1125 Lady Health Workers, 61 Nutrition Supervisors and 41 doctors who are imparting health services besides making them aware,” he said.
Twenty beds had been allocated for dengue patients at DHQ Hospital while five beds had been reserved at THQ Hospitals.
Talking to Dawn, Assistant Commissioner, Sadat Saeed, said that funds had been released to the health department for tackling the situation.
“There is no financial problem. The platelet separator would be installed soon at District Headquarters Hospital,” he maintained.
He further said that steps had been taken to monitor the private laboratories where poor patients were being fleeced. “The health department has been directed to ask private hospital for free treatment of dengue patients or on reasonable fee,” he said.
It has also been learnt that twenty per cent residents of Dhab Pari village have developed the dengue symptoms. Sources in the health department say that the department badly needs a platelet separator and at least three fogging machines on war footings.
It may be mentioned here that Chakwal was worst hit by dengue virus last year killing more than 20 persons and affecting dozens.


  1. About Allama Muhammad Yousaf Gabriel

    Mankind is facing danger unprecedented in history. The scientists have judged it as the total annihilation of life on earth, man animals and plants. But it is more than that it is the atomic hell. The author of Gabriel’s Islamic Bomb has in a missionary zeal from 1942 to 1982 made extensive studies and researches in the relative subjects of atomism and Quran, bible, sciences and philosophies. This present volume is one of the fourteen, written on the topic.

    Allama Muhammad Yousuf Gabriel is a symbol of universal peace, a model of simplicity, sincerity, sincerity and devotion, a colossal giant of ancient and modern learning, a philosopher, a scientist, a linguist a theologian, a poet and orator. He has a mission to save this world from the nuclear ruin the painful and disgraceful atomic doom of adamities. He wants to warn the mankind against the atomic hell and tries to guide them towards safety, while the appeals of the scientists and philosophers have been failed. The author was born on 17th February 1917 in khabekki village Soan Sakaser, Khoshab (Pakistan). It is very interesting thing that the author of such books has not attended any school, college or university from where he should get this knowledge.

  2. وادی سون سکیسر کو قدرت نے خوبصورتی اوربے شمار رعنا ئیوں سے نوازا ہے۔ اس کی سرسبز پہاڑیوں، ندی نالوں، آبشاروں، اور باغات کو دیکھ کر عقل دنگ رہ جاتی ہے۔ اور دیکھنے والا ان نظاروں میں گم ہو کر رہ جاتا ہے۔ اس کی تین جھیلیں اوچھالی، کھبیکی، جاہلر، او رسرسبز و شاداب پہاڑیاں قابل دید نی ہیں۔ صحت افزا مقامات میں موضع انگہ میں ایک قلندر اسم گرامی شاہ شرف ہو گذرے ہیں ۔ ان کے چار صاحب زادے پیر شہابل شاہ، پیر گلاب شاہ، پیر ولایت شاہ اور پیر محبوب عالم گیلانی ؒاپنے اپنے وقت کے قلندر تھے ۔ روحانیت میں ان کا اپنا اپنا منفرد مقام تھا ۔ ان کے منہ سے نکلی ہوئی ہر بات پوری ہوتی تھی۔ میں یہاں پیر محبوب عالم گیلانی ؒ کا تذکرہ کروں گا۔ کیوں کہ میرا تعلق موضع کھبیکی سے ہے ۔ اور وہ وہیں رہائش پذیر تھے ۔ ان کی کرامات جوزبان زد خلائق ہیں۔ بیان کرتا ہوں۔ جو قارعین کے لئے دلچسپی کا باعث ہو ںگی۔ سنا ہے ۔ کہ شہر میں ایک دفعہ وبا پھوٹ پڑی ۔ اور دھڑا دھڑ اموات ہونے لگیں ۔ لوگوں نے ان سے دعا کے لئے کہا۔ انہوں نے شہر کے گردا گرد کڑا دیا۔ اسی دن کے بعد و با ختم ہو گئی ۔ ایک اور کرامت ان کی یہ ہے ۔ کہ جب کبھی کسی کو سانپ ڈس لیتا ۔ تو رشتہ دار اس کو ان کے پاس د م درود کے لئے لاتے تھے ۔ آپ فرماتے تھے۔ کہ اسکو سانپ نے نہیں بلکہ ڈڈ ( مینڈک ) نے کاٹا ہے ۔ وہ ہر بیماری کا دم درود کرتے تھے۔ اور وہ آدمی فوراََ خدا کے فضل و کرم سے ٹھیک ہو جاتا تھا
