The constant heavy rains in Delhi have also increased the scare of dengue fever. Delhi and its neighbouring regions are witnessing heavy downpours over the past three days.
This has led to the rising number of dengue cases prompting the Delhi government to review all measures.
CM Arvind Kejriwal also reviewed the city’s preparations to combat dengue cases. Moreover, Delhi has prepared an action plan to contend with the infection; a rise in dengue cases is reported every year after the rains.
As per reports, a plan is in place along with the health department to take several steps in the coming days. Furthermore, the school children will be involved at a large scale to stop the spread of dengue.
Notably, in the months of October and November, every year the abundant presence of stagnant water after the monsoon rains leads to a conducive environment for the Aedes egypti mosquitoes. This is what causes dengue, to breed, sending infections spiraling.
Also, Delhi has seen an uptick in dengue cases this September. Over 101 infections were logged last week only.
