Doctors ask parents to be vigilant as children are most vulnerable to the virusThis year, city hospitals have been witnessing a steep rise in cases of a dengue-like viral fever, especially among children.

Contrary to claims by the authorities that the dengue threat is under control in the city, hospitals are recording a rise in the number of patients suffering from dengue-like symptoms. They say they are also flooded with cases of viral fever and other viral ailments. So much so that most hospitals are reporting a shortage of beds and accommodating patients in wards of all specialities. According to doctors, the disease is spreading at an “alarming rate” and there has been a significant surge in number of cases. The dengue-causing aedes aegypti mosquito breeds in freshwater and bites during the day.  At the State-run Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital, doctors are seeing an average of 20 suspected dengue cases a day. “All the 140 beds in the medicine ward are occupied and we are accommodating patients in wards of other specialities, whichever is available,” a spokesman of the hospital said.  The situa…

Healthy employees make a healthy company. This can well become a corporate mantra. An increasing number of companies appear to be realising that employees are their most valuable assets and that wellness programmes are a must in any workplace.

Employers play a significant role in the health of employees, said Dr Shalini Joshi, senior internal medicine consultant at Bengaluru's Fortis Hospital. The prevalent corporate culture involves more and more work with inadequate staff, in addition to long working hours, which leads to cutting down of the time spent with family and friends, said Joshi. "There's hardly any flexibility or appreciation of employees and this paves the way for depression and dissatisfaction. Since most of the youngsters spend 14-18 hours a day at work, only employers can do something for their health," she said.
