Delhi government is considering declaring the outbreak as an epidemic

10/02/2006
Delhi government is considering declaring the outbreak as an epidemic after the number of dengue cases rose from September last year to this year to 448. The national capital has reported 121 fresh cases in the past week, and has killed 11 people so far. Dengue virus is spread by the bite of female aedes mosquito that breeds in clean stagnant water. The disease could spread further in the next two months because the present weather helps in breeding of aedes mosquito.
