Dozens Admitted to Karachi Civil Hospital with High Fever Amid Sweltering Heat

At Civil Hospital Karachi, a worrying increase in patients suffering from high fever has highlighted the health challenges caused by soaring temperatures in the city. On Monday alone, 67 individuals were admitted due to symptoms of high fever, a situation worsened by the ongoing heatwave affecting the region.

Dr. Nizam Shaikh, overseeing the hospital’s heat stroke ward, reported that all admitted patients had registered temperatures of 101 degrees Fahrenheit. Among them, eighteen cases specifically presented with high fever, although definitive cases of heatstroke were yet to be confirmed.

Dr. Nizam stressed that the surge in fever cases can be attributed to the extreme heat conditions prevailing in Karachi. He advised residents to prioritize hydration by consuming ample fluids and cautioned against unnecessary outdoor activities during peak daytime temperatures.

According to the Meteorological Department, Karachi is experiencing temperatures ranging between 40 to 41 degrees Celsius, with the heat index potentially making it feel as hot as 46 degrees Celsius due to high humidity levels. The department issued warnings of a possible heatstroke-like situation persisting in Karachi over the next three days, urging citizens to take precautionary measures.

The combination of scorching temperatures and elevated humidity levels poses significant health risks, prompting authorities to intensify public health advisories. The local healthcare infrastructure remains on alert, ensuring adequate medical support and resources are available to manage the influx of patients affected by the heat wave.

As Karachi navigates through this challenging weather pattern, vigilance, and community awareness are crucial in preventing heat-related illnesses. Public cooperation in adhering to health guidelines, including staying indoors during peak heat hours and staying hydrated, will be pivotal in minimizing the impact on public health during this period of extreme weather conditions.
