Dengue and chikungunya are two arboviral infections that are common in tropical countries and are spread by aedes mosquitoes. A retrospective study was conducted from June 21 to June 22 to determine the prevalence of these diseases at Gandhi Hospital Secunderabad, Telangana. NIV's IgM antibody capture ELISA kits were used to test for chikungunya.SDdiagnostics performed dengue NS1 antigen testing using ELISA. There were 2981 samples for dengue NS1 antigen, of which 114 (3.8 percent) were positive, and 4822 samples for IgM, of which 618 (12.8 percent) were positive.The number of chikungunya samples received was 4711, with 376 (7.9%) being positive. The age group most commonly affected by dengue was 40–60 years old (37.7 percent) and for chikungunya, 21–40 years (58.7 percent). In terms of gender distribution, males accounted for 58.7 percent of dengue infections and females for 55.7 percent of chikungunya infections, respectively. Dengue infectivity increased the most in September (17.4%) and October (17.11%), while chikungunya infectivity increased the most in September (9.5%) and November (10%). But early detection and treatment, as well as controlling vectors toprevent the spread of disease, would be good for the community and society as a whole.
