About 15 people were hospitalised at Mangalore and Kerala due to fever and two cases were proved to be dengue at Karike borders with Kerala in the Kodagu region.

District Health Officer(DHO) Dr Shivaram Naik confirmed that two cases at Karike seemed to be dengue and said team of health officials were camping there since three days.

Doctors from Napoklu and Bhagamandala had been deputed to Karike and health officials were doing a door to door service and check up.

The health department said the unhygienic condition around the village was increasing the fear of disease. Zilla Panchayath Member Rajiv, Gram panchayath Members Sudir, Chengappa and Ramachandra visited the houses and hospitals yesterday and urged the health departments of Kerala and Kodagu to sit together to chalk out programmes to curb the spread of disease."
