Capital is facing the outbreak of deadly fevers including chikungunya, Dengue, Malaria. Four dengue deaths and as many as 1158 dengue and 1057 chikungunya cases have been reported in the national capital till September 10, though their number was “less” than last year due to “preparatory activities”, AAP Government told the Delhi High Court.
AAP government is under attack as none of their leaders are present in Delhi during this crucial time. The government denied claims that Delhi was facing the “worst dengue crisis” and said they have taken a slew of measures to control these vector-borne diseases, it said in an affidavit filed before a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal.
Maintaining that four deaths have been reported due to dengue till September 10 this year said the government, 1158 dengue cases were reported, out of which 804 patients are Delhi residents while 354 are out of Delhi.
It said 1057 cases of chikungunya were also reported but no death has been attributed to this disease till September 10 as per the report of South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC). Follow the careful measures and beware of these deadly fevers.
