In Lucknow, new Dengue cases are being reported. With 26 more cases reported in the past 24 hours in Lucknow, there seems to be no let-up in the situation. The new cases have taken the tally of dengue cases to 592.
Whereas cases were reported from the hotspot areas such as Sarojini Nagar, Aishbagh, Alambagh, Kaiserbagh, Aliganj, Indira Nagar and NK Road, three came from Mohanlalganj and Kakori in the outskirts of the state capital. Chief medical officer (CMO) Dr Manoj Agrawal said, "All the patients are stable and recuperating at home." He said that hospitals have been told to screen all fever patients for dengue.
Experts have advised people to take proper precautions as dengue cases may grow further due to waterlogging after the post-monsoon rains. The female Aedes Aegypti is the carrier of the dengue virus and lays eggs in freshwater accumulated in and around houses. Meanwhile, the health department officials detected the larvae of the Aedes aegypti mosquito in 7 houses in Hussainabad and Indira Nagar areas.
