A relative of mine is admitted to a local hospital and tested positive for dengue. His platelet count was checked thrice. The first time they checked it was yesterday afternoon, and the count was 83,000. The second time they tested him yesterday evening and the count was 81,000. The third test was done today morning and the result was 79,000. The clinical assistants said they are not able to ensure an increase in the platelet count. We are too tensed. Meanwhile, the WBC has steadily increased from 3600 to 5400. Please tell me what we can expect? Is it serious? The patient is active, walking, talking, and eating fine. He only has joint pains and rashes.
