At least two people have been diagnosed with dengue and 15 others are suspected to be suffering from the dreaded disease in the city, the health department said. Cases of malaria are also increasing at an alarming rate, pushing the administration to step up measures to prevent waterlogging and mosquito breeding during the peak of the rainy season.

A total of 145 malaria cases have been registered till date. Experts have warned that in the next couple of months, low temperature and water stagnation at various places could provide ideal condition for mosquito breeding. To check the spread of such diseases, the district administration has issued guidelines to the health department.

“We have issued guidelines twice to do fogging and check possible mosquito-breeding sites,” said an official. Meanwhile, civil surgeon Dr Praveen Garg has pulled up his officials and instructed them to inspect each house to prevent water stagnation.
