number of casualties due to suspected mosquito-bred fever
stands at 27.

symptoms of the dengue fever have tested positive, officials
Hospital authorities are hamstrung in providing
specialised treatment to the affected due to the
unavailability of kits for transfusing platelets to patients,
civil surgeon Mukesh Kumar complained.
Dr Arvind Kumar, who is supervising the dengue
awareness campaign, expressed hope that the disease will be
eliminated automatically soon as the mosquitoes responsible
for outbreak of the fever generally slip into hibernation
around this period of the year.

ordered the municipal authorities to carry out fogging in the
town in order to keep the dengue at bay.
