The man made frequent trips to Kolkata, where an outbreak of the mosquito-borne infection has been reported, Pradhan said.

So far, 575 positive dengue cases have been reported in Odisha this year. More than half the people who tested positive for dengue were from the coastal Balasore and Ganjam districts, Pradhan said.

While most of the people received treatment at their respective homes and were cured, the number of people currently under treatment in different hospitals in the state for the infection would be around 25, an official said.

The state government has trained a large number of volunteers to carry out an awareness campaign in the affected areas to contain the spread of infection, he said.
