In order to prevent chikungunya from spreading, people should not allow water stagnation, protect themselves from mosquito bites, keep the surroundings clean, dispose off unnecessary items such as old tyres, flower pots, cans, etc., use mosquito repellents or mosquito net, and keep their bodies well covered, say officials.

Chikungunya cases have risen to 432 and dengue cases to 487 cases and two deaths in New Delhi til August 27, 2016, reported the three civic corporations.

According to the municipal corporations, the highest number of dengue cases have been witnessed in the areas under the North Delhi Municipal Corporation with the figure standing at 97. In the East Delhi Municipal Corporation area, there are 15 cases, and the South Delhi Municipal Corporation has seen 71 cases.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) alone recorded 391 cases till August 20, 2016.

Diagnosing chikungunya entails distinguishing it from dengue, as both diseases being caused by the bite of the same mosquito - Aedes aegypti.
