Take FBC test if fever persists for three days

Lady Ridgeway Children’s hospital’s Consultant Paediatrician Dr. Deepal Perera, said that if fever persists for more than three days in a child, a full blood count test should be done.

He said that epidemic diseases such as influenza, dengue, diarrhoea and rat fever are on the rise with the heavy rain these days and requested that the children be directed to wear face masks in view of the existing disease conditions.

He said that there is a greater risk of spreading these diseases among small children and added the people should be careful while eating to prevent diarrhoeal diseases.

Meanwhile, the number of cases of rat fever has increased and about 2,600 infection cases have been reported this year so far.
