More Cases of Dengue


In Bokaro India, A three-member team of the Indian Council of Medical Research assessed the situation of the recent dengue outbreak. A total number of four people has already died in the past four months and a high number of 132 are affected with this disease. This has been the highest record in this town. Research scientist visited the Hospital in Bokaro and met with the patients. He said “The activity related to prevention was conducted effectively by the health department staff. To create awareness about the disease, the health staff distributed pamphlets and made announcement on loud speakers in the area and residents are following those instructions properly. However, stagnant water was found at various nooks and corners of the town. Chemicals were sprayed at mosquito-breeding sites besides fogging,” This should be one way to help India fight this disease, being a fairly poor country with little resources, it should start with educating people.
