 Seventy One Dengue Cases Reported in Delhi This Week

Officials say that a total of 71 cases of dengue have been reported from across the capital this week alone.

Expressing deep concern at the high number of cases, Delhi Health Minister A.K. Walia directed health officers to effectively contain the spread of the disease.


He warned that any dereliction of duty in effectively implementing anti-dengue measures would lead to strict disciplinary action against the defaulting officials.

Walia said it was a matter of concern that as compared to 13 in 2012 and 84 in 2011, this year, as many as 226 cases of dengue have been reported across Delhi till date.
