India : Delhi dengue team to be in Mumbai by Wednesday

Article via Times of India, excerpt :

In the wake of a spate in deaths due to dengue, a team from Delhi's National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme will visit the city by Wednesday to check the status of the disease in the city.

The BMC's insecticide department is also trying to clear as many breeding sites as possible to put a curb on the spread of the ailment.

Alarmed by the spike in the number of dengue deaths that the city has witnessed this season, the civic body is calling in experts from Delhi and Goa for technical assistance. So far this year, 11 people have died of the disease and among them seven were minors.

But the civic body seems not to be ready to take the blame
