Warangal ACP Dies Of Swine Flu:- The Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) of Warangal district, M. Durgaiah (54), died of swine flu in Yashoda Hospital on Sunday morning.
Around six days after the symptoms surfaced, Durgaiah was admitted to the hospital and his condition was not stable. According to senior doctors in the hospital, the police official had severe uncontrolled diabetes. His kidney was also affected. The virus in the body increased as he had a low immunity resistance and the lungs were badly affected. The doctors said that before coming to the tertiary sector, he was treated in two other hospitals.

A senior doctor explained, “Those who have uncontrolled diabetes require multiple measures to bring the sugar under control and also save the kidneys. At the same time, the lung infection has to be controlled. This must be carried out in the initial days so that the body can fight the viral load. But in a deteriorated condition these measures become a challenging task and often the patient succumbs to multiple complications.”
Since 1992, Durgaiah has served in the police and was posted in Vardhannapet in Warangal district. Durgaiah made a mark for himself with his sincere service and bold attacks on Maoists in Warangal district. The police department was shocked over the death of Durgaiah. This year, in 2017, there have been 18 deaths in the state due to swine flu.
