Hubballi: The monsoon rains have started late, and people are worried about the increase in infectious diseases. Climate change has caused a rise in cases such as viral fever, which has led to the outpatient department at KIMS hospital being crowded with patients.

Drizzles, gusty breezes, and sunny weather in a jiffy of the cold weather are affecting the elderly, including children.

The number of patients is on the rise and people are going to government and private hospitals for treatment. Cold, cough, and fever have developed in some others.

In addition, many individuals are experiencing body aches, prompting them to seek treatment at KIMS.

Likewise, the number of patients visiting KIMS hospital is rising, and the doctors and medical staff reassured the public, ‘Do not worry, they will recover soon.’ Generally, the immune systems of children and the elderly are weakened during the rainy season. Doctors advise people to consume hot meals and take care of their health during this time.
