FAISALABAD: An 11-year-old boy succumbed to dengue fever at Allied Hospital on Monday. Khalid Mehmood, 30, and his son Yasir, residents of Madinabad ABC Road, were brought to Allied Hospital on Saturday.

They were both running a high fever. Doctors ran some tests and diagnosed them with dengue fever. They were admitted to the hospital for treatment but Yasir breathed his last on Sunday night. Doctors said his father’s condition was serious.

Allied Hospital Medical Superintendent Rashid Maqbool said, “Yasir had chronic bone marrow disease and was being treated for tuberculosis as well.”

He said Yasir had been in a critical condition when he was admitted to the hospital.

“We are providing Mehmood the best possible treatment we can,” Maqbool said.

District Headquarter Hospital Medical Superintendent Muhammad Arif told The Express Tribune that Adnan Saleem, 22, a resident of Chak 216-RB, had also been diagnosed with dengue. He had been admitted to the hospital where doctors were treating him, he said.
