So far, 12,552 people have been tested for Dengue and out of these 2492 people have been found positive for Dengue. Although 781 people have been discharged after treatment, 2,907 are still being treated in the government hospitals as the majority of them suffer from high grade fever, headache and muscular pain i.e. the symptoms close to dengue fever.
