Dr. Shashibhushan Upadhyay, the Senior Physician at Kabir Chaura Divisional Hospital, stated, "People are being instructed by the hospital administration to be careful, but the number of dengue patients in the hospitals is increasing." 

He further added, "Most of the patients in the Divisional Hospital of Varanasi are kept under mosquito nets so that the infection does not spread to other patients in the hospital."
