Pakistan : Dengue claims three more lives

Via Dawn :

" LAHORE, Dec 3: After a break of five days or so, dengue fever claimed lives of another three patients at city hospitals on Saturday.

Three dengue-related deaths in relatively cold weather have baffled health and district government experts who had strong belief that dengue spreading mosquito remains inactive in this weather.

However, even advent of December brought no relief to two young and a middle-aged man, who ultimately fell victim to the virus. Saturday’s three deaths took the toll to 355.

Nineteen-year-old Niaz of Samanabad succumbed to virus at a private health facility near Shadman Market, Iqra (18) of Sanda at Mayo Hospital and Amjad Ali (40) of Cantonment at Services Hospital."
