Dengue cases on the decline in Orissa

Aug 30, 2011 - 9:49:48 PM
The mosquoto-transmitted disease has so far killed 23 people and infected 912 others in the state this month, he said.

 
[RxPG] Bhubaneswar, Aug 30 - No dengue deaths have been reported in Orissa since past four days, and though fresh cases are surfacing, their number has gone down, an official said Tuesday.

At least 92 samples were tested Tuesday at Sriram Chandra Bhanj Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack and 86 at Veer Surendra Sai Medical College, Burla, in Sambalpur district. Of these, only four and 46 samples respectively were found positive, an official of the state health department told IANS.

'The number of positive cases has witnessed a decline. A few days ago, it was above a hundred daily. Similarly, we were receiving reports of deaths almost every day,' he said.

He attributed the decline to the awareness campaign the government has launched in the affected areas.

The mosquoto-transmitted disease has so far killed 23 people and infected 912 others in the state this month, he said.

A maximum of 400 people have tested positive in Angul district.
