If private labs tests are included, then this number can run into hundreds. Amidst the outbreak of dengue, the team of Malaria Department has started taking samples.
The fogging and larval survey has been started again. Dengue mosquito breeds in clean water. Therefore, the Malaria Department has issued an advisory, not to allow clean water to gather around the house.

Not a single case of dengue death has been reported in Ujjain so far, said a health official. A large number of dengue victims have been found by health workers and their families living in the District Hospital premises. After this, special attention is being given to the cleanliness of the premises.
