Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Sunday visited dengue patients, including his kin, undergoing treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

Singh visited patients in the general ward and later went to the private ward where his grandsons Rohan (11) and Madhav (17) and his son-in-law Vijay Tankha are recuperating from symptoms of the vector-borne disease.

"The Prime Minister visited the D-2 and AB-3 wards and went bed-to-bed enquiring about the condition of over 30 patients," AIIMS Medical Superintendent DK Sharma said.

The Prime Minister spent about 30 minutes at the hospital visiting patients and his kin.

Currently 151 patients are undergoing treatment for dengue at the AIIMS where 28 fresh cases have been reported in the last 24 hours.

Dengue has so far claimed 21 lives in the capital, with as many as 853 cases of the disease reported this year.
