Via Times of India :

" NEW DELHI: As Delhi rolls up its sleeves to host the 19th Commonwealth Games, civic authorities continue to grapple with what experts are calling a "cycle of dengue". According to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), the infectious disease has claimed five lives so far.

The total number of patients reached 2,536 Wednesday. The number this year is expected to cross the 2006 figure of 3,366 cases. Nearly 70 new dengue cases are turning up in the city every day despite the regular fogging operations and checks against breeding of dengue causing mosquitoes in houses."
