India : Woman dies of dengue, toll reaches 7

Via Times of India :

"  A 45-year-old woman has died of dengue, taking the toll due to the mosquito-borne disease this season to seven, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi said on Tuesday.

According to MCD officials, Nurjahan, a resident of Batla House, was admitted to AIIMS on December 1 and died four days later. "She was diagnosed with dengue," said Dr V K Monga, chairman, MCD health committee.

Occurrence of dengue deaths even after winter has set in is a matter of concern, Monga said. "The toll due to dengue has gone up to seven this year. The total count of dengue cases in the city is 1,120," he said."
