New Delhi: Threats of mosquito-borne diseases like dengue and malaria loom large in Delhi with incessant rain and stagnant rainwater conducive for mosquito breeding.

Fourteen dengue cases have been reported in the capital, a civic agency official said Friday.

"We have confirmed 14 dengue cases in Delhi. With incessant rains and water stagnation in several parts, the threat of diseases like dengue, malaria and other vector-born diseases is high," N.K. Yadav, health officer at South Delhi Municipal Corporation said.

Admitting the threat, A.K. Bansal, north Delhi health officer said the civic agency has started fumigation. House-to-house checking of mosquito breeding is also being done.

Last year Delhi reported about 3,000 dengue cases, of whom four people died.
