272 new dengue patients found in 3 months in Chitwan

Posted by Anup Baral | October 22, 2016 :
As many as 219 people have been infected with dengue virus in Chitwan district in the last two months alone. Ratnanagar Municipality of the district has been hit the hardest. Various hospitals in Chitwan reported a surge in the number of dengue patients. Celebratory mood faded in the district with increases in the number of dengue cases during the Dashain festival. “About 80 percent of the 219 dengue patients in the district are from Ratnanagar,” informed Ram KC, vector control inspector at the District Public Health Office (DPHO), Chitwan, adding that ward number 2 and surrounding areas of the municipality have been affected the most. Dengue, a vector-borne viral infection, is transmitted by the bite of an Aedes mosquito infected with one of the four dengue virus serotypes. The disease affects infants, young children and adults alike. This mosquito is usually active at night, but doctors have urged everyone to stay safe from mosquito bites even during the day.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
