The International Cricket Council has sought medical opinion about dengue but it was not unduly worried about the viral fever that has claimed 55 lives in the country so far.
"We are aware of the situation. We have spoken to the medical experts and they have told us to take normal precaution," ICC Media Manager Brian Murgatroyd told.
Murgatroyd said no team participating in the Champions Trophy had expressed any concern about the debilitating illness.
"The teams have their own medical personnel and to my knowledge none have expressed any concern," he said.
So far, there have been 21 dengue-related deaths in Delhi where most of the top teams have assembled.
"But all the teams are leaving for their respective venues tomorrow, so it is not a problem," Murgatroyd said.
