Researchers Find Out That You Can Get Dengue, Malaria And Chikungyna Simultaneously!
If your biggest monsoon fear has been getting malaria or dengue or chikungunya, recent cases show you can get all three together. Although ‘triple concurrent infection’ is rare, it makes treatment very difficult.
Researchers at Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) have reported two such cases in the medical journals Intervirology and Virus Disease. Dr Mohammad Abdullah, one of the researchers, told TOI the first case was of a three-year-old who visited JMI’s primary health centre in August 2016. The second involved a 21-year-old student who visited the centre about a month later.

“Both had high fever along with chills, uneasiness, body pain and headache when they visited our primary health centre. They tested positive for malaria, so we started treatment while the results of dengue and chikungunya tests were awaited. To our surprise, they tested positive for both.” Doctors say a national action plan is needed to check such infections.
