Six states including UP, Delhi and Haryana report dengue outbreak: Govt
 
New Delhi, At least six states, including UP, Delhi and Haryana, have reported outbreaks of dengue disease, the Union Health Ministry said on Thursday.

Rajesh Bhushan, Health secretary at Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoH&FW) said that the outbreaks of the vector-borne disease is the result of water accumulation leading to birth of Aedes mosquitoes responsible for Dengue.

"When water is accumulated, it leads to the birth of Aedes mosquitoes responsible for dengue outbreaks. Source reduction is done in all states every year. We've received reports of dengue outbreaks in Delhi, Haryana, West Bengal, UP, Gujarat and Assam," he added.

The western part of UP is the most hit region with the Dengue outbreak and is battling a huge spike in its cases. Firozabad and Mathura are the worst-affected districts in the region. However, the disease is now spreading to the eastern part of the state as well.

Meanwhile, Delhi health minister Satyendar Jain had said on Wednesday that the dengue situation in the national capital is in control so far and the Delhi government is alert and prepared to deal with any situation arising out of the vector-borne disease.

Recently, ICMR Director-General Dr Balram Bhargava informed that a D2 strain of dengue, found in Mathura, Agra, and Firozabad districts, was fatal and might cause hemorrhaging.

Experts say that Dengue virus serotype 2 (DENV-2 or D2) is known to be the most virulent strain and can cause severity in disease.
