 Over 300 Dengue Cases Reported in Delhi

The dengue outbreak in New Delhi continued to worsen after health officials reported 30 new cases of the mosquito borne disease, taking the total number of cases to 393.

The officials however once again reiterated that there was no need for any panic and that there has been only one death, a 9-year old girl in South Delhi, due to the disease this season. However independent experts have casted doubt over the official figures, which claim that there have been only 150 cases so far.

Dr N K Yadav, who is a senior health official at Municipal Corporation of Delhi, suggested that the outbreak of dengue was a seasonal affair and recommended that people should not try to treat the symptoms with painkillers or aspirin.

"The civic bodies are tackling the situation well and there are no problems. The city has seen a large number of dengue and malaria cases before too. We have intensified fogging and door-to-door inspection. Also, our employees have been asked to work on Sundays. But there is no case for concern or worry, the problem is very much under control", he said.
