Of the latest 38 cases, the highest of 29 were reported from Cuttack, M.M. Pradhan, joint director of the state health department, told IANS.

Although local media reported the death of a 20-year-old man at Cuttack, 26 km from here, Saturday, Pradhan said the area health officials were yet to confirm it.

He said blood samples of as many as 1,160 people have been tested this year and 268 of them have so far been found positive for dengue.
