Oct 9, 2009 - 10:30:33 PM
Private practitioners say the actual number of dengue affected people will be much higher if the patients in private hospitals and rural areas are taken into account.

 
[RxPG] Bhopal, Oct 9 - Alarmed at the spread of mosquito-borne dengue fever, Madhya Pradesh has constituted a committee to tour affected districts and give recommendations to control the dreaded disease which has claimed nine lives in the state so far.

An investigating committee has been constituted which will work under the supervision of Sharad Tiwari, Dean, Sagar Medical College, and will after investigations give the recommendations to control the dreaded disease, said Health Minister Anoop Mishra.

At least 192 cases of dengue have been confirmed by the Bhopal-based Gandhi Medical College.

Director - Ashok Sharma said: 'Nine people have died from dengue in Madhya Pradesh in the past three months, while 129 others - of whom 57 are in the state capital - are affected by the disease'.

'As many as 57 Dengue patients have been identified in the state capital, followed by 33 in Indore, 17 in Balaghat and 12 in other districts. Three people died of dengue in Bhopal and Indore each. One each succumbed in Ashoknagar, Satna and Balaghat,' Sharma told IANS.
