New Delhi: Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain on Friday urged everyone to co-operate with the government to to tackle the outbreak of Dengue and Chikungunya and not play politics.

The Delhi Health Minister said many of the dengue and chikungunya patients come to Delhi hospitals from other states. He stressed on segregating the data.

According to municipal corporation data, the number of dengue, chikungunya and malaria infection in Delhi stood at 1,158, 1,057 and 21 respectively.
