India : Another dies of suspected dengue

Via Times of India :

" BHUBANESWAR: Another person died of suspected dengue in Cuttack on Saturday. The government, however, is yet to confirm the death as one caused by the vector-borne disease and maintained the official toll at 23.

The deceased was identified as Sangram Sahoo (25) of Angul. He was undergoing treatment at a private hospital since the past week. Chief district medical officer Manorama Dei claimed that the patient was shifted to Cuttack in a very critical stage.

A government statement said 134 samples were tested in SCB Medical College and Hospital, Cuttack, and Capital Hospital at Bhubaneswar on Saturday, of which just seven samples tested positive for the vector-borne disease, including four from Angul and three from Dhenkanal."
