India : Dengue cases on the rise

Via Deccan Herald, excerpt :

" A large number of people have been undergoing treatment at various hospitals including those in Kolar and Bangalore for dengue fever.

The disease claimed life of a doctor in M Kottur recently. However, the Government hospital and the Health Department are apathetic about the outbreak in Srinivaspur taluk.The number of patients testing positive for dengue fever has also gone up both in rural and urban areas.

While the patients have been undergrowing treatment in hospitals of Kolar and Bangalore, the Government hospital has no mechanism to alert the public. When asked, the doctors here point a finger at the Health Department where none of the officers is said to have been aware of dengue fever!"
