Patiala, October 5

With four fresh cases reported on Tuesday, the number of dengue cases in the district has risen to 70 this season. Though the Health Department said the situation was under control, the hospitalisation of dengue patients was being reported in the district. Dr Sumeet Singh, district epidemiologist, said that the dengue cases were bound to rise due to the conducive environment for dengue breeding at this point of time, however, the situation was not alarming. “Our teams on the ground are destroying dengue larvae during anti-dengue drives. People need to drain out stagnant water in their households once a week. It will stop dengue breeding and save themselves from the disease,” he said.
