Dr KV Vajpayee, district malaria officer (DMO), said as this season is prone to malaria, its cases would definitely rise. The department has taken all the measures to prevent malaria mosquitoes from breeding, he added. The DMO said a rally would be taken out next week to spread awareness about malaria among the city residents. Less awareness among people regarding malaria is one of the major reasons behind rising malaria cases, he said.

Patients suffering from any type of fever must consult doctor as soon as possible and get checked for malaria, he added.
