Seventeen of the state's 19 districts have been hit by the virus that is carried into the human body by the Aedes aegypti mosquito.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has been daily advising people about the do's and don'ts of the disease including which medicines to take and what to avoid if they exhibit dengue-like symptoms.
