The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has asked the institute's director to take measures to control mosquito breeding. Totally 6,229 dengue cases have been reported in 2010, including 8 deaths, with the first case being reported in June, but this year the cases have started early. The rains that the city experienced in the last month could be the reason for the dengue cases.
