Anti-dengue drive: CM thanks Delhiites for participation

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday thanked the people of Delhi for their “enthusiastic participation” in the AAP government’s anti-dengue drive, which he said, had resulted in the dip in number of cases of the vector-borne disease nearly to half the number of cases recorded last year.

A statement released by the Delhi government stated that the city has recorded 467 cases of dengue till October this year, while there had been 830 cases of dengue during the corresponding period last year.

‘No dengue death’

“The data released till October 12 show there has been no dengue death in Delhi this year, while there had been four deaths last year with the number of casualties due to the disease in preceding years being in double-digit figures,” the statement said.

The Chief Minister had launched the “10 Hafte, 10 Baje, 10 Minute” campaign earlier this year.
