The rise in dengue is continuing in the provisional state capital Dehradun. On Tuesday three new cases of the disease were reported which increased the overall patient count to 56 this season.

The district vector borne diseases officer Subhash Joshi said all the patients are undergoing treatment and are out of danger. He said that apart from source reduction exercises the health department has also undertaken an awareness drive in which people are explained the ways to prevent the menace of dengue. 

Joshi said that since the Aedes Aezypti, the mosquito carrier of the disease, strikes during the day time and breeds in clear water, one should wear full sleeved clothes to prevent exposure to the mosquito bite and not allow water to  collect in their vicinity.
