The Dakshina Kannada health department is concerned about an increase in viral fever and flu cases, as well as COVID-19. Many people have been neglecting the signs, and experts are warning that this might lead to consequences. If people have symptoms, they must go to a nearby clinic and offer their samples for a rapid antigen test (RAT). If the RAT result is negative but the symptoms continue, they should have the RT-PCR test done. People should not neglect it just because the symptoms are minor.
A large number of fever and flu cases have been reported in Mangaluru city. “The new coronavirus is to blame for the majority of the fever cases.” In the Dakshina Kannada district, Mangaluru has been linked to a large number of COVID-19 cases. There are 2,645 active cases in the Mangaluru city boundaries, out of roughly 5,500 in the Dakshina Kannada district. Meanwhile, there are 1,599 current cases in Mangaluru’s rural areas.
As compared to individuals who have not been vaccinated, those who have received the vaccination had fewer serious Covid-19 symptoms. Unvaccinated people are also susceptible to respiratory illness. Those who are experiencing symptoms should get tested for COVID-19 right away.
