India : With 68 cases of dengue & 432 of malaria, UT mulls next move

Via Indian Express :

" With the onset of winter, a sudden decline has been witnessed in the number of dengue fever cases reported in the city. So far, Chandigarh has witnessed 68 confirmed cases in different government hospitals during this season, which is substantially less than what it was last year.

By this time in 2010, UT Health Department had recorded 138 confirmed cases of dengue.

Health department officials said that this year the number of cases were on the lower side owing to the increased awareness among city residents about the fever and also due to ICE activities undertaken by the department by way of holding awareness camps in various locations."
