India : Concern over spread of dengue

Via The Hindu :

" People of Bagalkot district, especially those in Mudhol and Jamkhandi taluks, fear that dengue may claim more lives if the authorities fail to initiate measures immediately to prevent its spread.

In the last two months, seven persons have succumbed to dengue and 37 suspected cases have been reported in the district.

According to official sources, steps are being taken to contain the spread of the disease, including fogging in areas from where dengue cases were reported. People have been instructed to maintain cleanliness in their surroundings and prevent water stagnation."
