FAISALABAD: The Health Department has ordered an inquiry against the medical superintendent of Allied Hospital following reports in newspapers that four dengue fever patients were admitted to the hospital but the Health Department was not informed about them. The inquiry follows a report submitted to the department by two deputy medical superintendents and an additional medical superintendent that denies that any of the four men was a dengue fever patient. The report said that Muhammad Akram, 35; Muhammad Hasnain, 17; Maqsood Ahmad, 26, and Rashid Ahmed, were hospitalised in July but none of them was a dengue fever patient. Talking to The Express Tribune, MS Dr Rashid Maqbool said there was no need to inform the department in this case.
