Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain has directed these clinics to remain functional from 7 am to 9 pm on all the days, including Sundays and holidays, till further orders. He said that the staff at these clinics will be deputed in double shifts so that check-ups of people coming here with fever and suspected dengue complaints are done without any delay.

The clinics are located in those areas which are most affected. Meanwhile, the Centre yesterday issued a fresh advisory to the Delhi government urging it to intensify measures to check the breeding of mosquitoes.

The note came after experts warned of the situation worsening following fresh showers in the city. The Health Ministry has also directed all hospitals under the Centre not to deny treatment to any patient suffering from fever or anyone who show dengue-like symptoms. It has asked hospitals to increase their bed strength to accommodate more patients.

Over 2,000 people have tested positive for the vector-borne disease in the national capital so far. At least 21 people have lost their lives in the disease.
