India : Dengue cases cross 3,000 in Delhi

Via Times of India :

" NEW DELHI: With just five days left for the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, the city continued to grapple with a dengue outbreak as cases of the vector-borne disease reached 3,013 after 97 more patients tested positive.

The capital has reported five dengue deaths this season.

South Delhi continued to be worst-affected this season recording 437 cases, followed by MCD Civil Lines Zone (392), Rohini (354) and Central Zone (337).

The civic bodies are attributing the rapid increase in dengue cases this season to prolonged monsoon and stagnation of water at Commonwealth Games construction sites."
