India : Dengue cases in Gujarat fourth highest in country

Via Times of India :

"  If the figures of National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP) are to be believed , only one person died of dengue in the state since January 2011.

The dengue figures published by NVBDCP-Gujarat till November this year claim that only 1,327 dengue cases were reported in the state since January with just one fatality .

Going by these numbers , Gujarat ranked fourth in the country in terms of the number of dengue cases in the country in 2011, after Punjab , Orissa and Tamil Nadu .

Besides this state health authorities have been claiming repeatedly that 2011 was an "eight year peak" in mosquito-related illnesses."
