Another coastal district, Ganjam, has reported 15 new cases, Pradhan added.

The death toll due to dengue, however, remained at four as no fresh deaths have been reported from any part of the state, he said.

While most of those infected by dengue received treatments at their homes and were cured, the number of people currently undergoing treatment for the disease in various hospitals in the state was around 15, Pradhan said.

Trained volunteers have been pressed into service to carry out awareness campaigns in the affected areas to reduce the spread of the infection, he said.
