" Dengue cases in the city reached the 92 mark after three new patients tested positive for the mosquito—borne disease.

“Three people have tested positive for dengue virus in the last couple of days. The total number of people affected by the fever is 92,” Dr V K Monga, Chairman, Public Health Committee, Municipal Corporation of Delhi, said.
