Pakistan : Dengue fever surprises experts with 2 more victims

Article via The Nation, excerpt :

" The ruthless dengue fever, re-emerging from a deceptive hibernation of a few weeks and defeating peoples’ perception that a peak winter will perhaps kill the virus forever, put to sword another two patients on Saturday.

The deadly virus has surprised the experts who believed that the carrier Aedes Aegypti would not survive at such a low temperature. The menace has not only resurfaced, but also took the lives of three patients so far during the peak of winter."
