 Ear Infections on the Rise in Pune

The number of ear infections in Pune is on the rise with doctors blaming unusual cold weather for the spread of bacteria and viruses that cause the infections.

Leading ENT specialist, Dr Kailash Sant said that while ear infections are normal during winter, the number has shot up by more than 20 percent of the average number while the inner ear infection cases have increased three fold.

Dr Sant blames it on the cold weather that has helped the spread of a new strain of viruses.

"The rise in infections could be due to the new strains of viruses that are predominant in the air. However, one of the main reasons is changing weather which is causing all bacterial and viral infections. This year, the city saw less sunlight during winters which provided the viruses with a congenial condition to grow and cause infections", he added.
