Infection-related deaths are on the rise, owing to infected patients arriving late for treatment

covid-19 deaths

The vast majority of COVID-19 infected people in the district are being treated at home.

However, the death rate has begun to rise as people infected with the virus fail to contact health workers on time.

According to Dev Prakash Ghimire, corona resource person at the District Health Office, three people died of COVID-19 in the district on Friday alone. The failure of the infected to arrive at health facilities on time is the cause of the rising number of deaths.

So far, 38 people have died, with a total of 965 active cases as of Friday. “People are only coming to the hospital when things get serious, which increases the likelihood of death,” Ghimire said.

Every infected person was discovered to have a different type of virus impact. “Some of the patients were found with severe symptoms and it was difficult to cure the pneumonia,” said Dr. Sailendra BK Pokharel, medical superintendent at Dhaulagiri Hospital.

Dr. Pokhrel advises infected people to keep in touch with health workers on a regular basis and to keep track of their oxygen levels and breathing difficulties. On Friday, two infected people died at the Dhaulagiri hospital, and another died while being treated at the Dhorpatan Corona Hospital.
