Abstract

Dengue and Chikungunya are the most common Arboviral infections and have caused several fatal outbreaks in the Gulbarga region. This study aims to explore the prevalence of Dengue and Chikungunya co-infection among Gulbarga population since it presents very similar signs and symptoms in the early stages of acute febrile illness. Blood samples were collected from patients presenting symptoms of acute febrile illness during monsoon season i.e., from Oct and Nov-2019.Sample were tested for Dengue and Chikungunya IgM ELISA using standardized kits from NIV-Pune. Positive cases were then confirmed by the Dept. of Neuro-Microbiology NIMHANS-Bangalore. About 519 samples were included in the study, of which 234(45.1%) were male and 285(54.9%) were female patients. Out of 519 samples 136 samples were positive for Chikungunya and 58 samples positive for Dengue and 22 were positive for both Dengue and Chikungunya, concluding a co-infection. Patients of age group between 31-40 and 21-30 years showed highest positive case of Chikungunya (33%). Taluka wise distribution of positive cases shows maximum positivity from Gulbarga Urban region with 55% and 27.2% Dengue and Chikungunya respectively. Our study suggest the prevalence of co-infection (Dengue and Chikungunya) rather than mono infection of either Dengue or Chikungunya, which requires laboratory confirmation of dual infection followed by strict treatment strategy and preventive measures of regular house hold monitoring of water storage and emptying if any breeding of mosquitoes exists.
