Fresh 26 cases of dengue have surfaced during the past 24 hours taking the number of positive cases to 297 in Panchkula district.

At present, 105 people are under treatment at the Civil Hospital, Sector 6, and 134 at private hospitals.

Officials, MC pass the buck over fogging

Residents alleged that when they approached health officials for fogging, the latter said it was the responsibility of the MC to get fogging done if there was no case in their area. The MC officials, on the other hand, put the onus on the Health Department. — TNS
