To add to the worries of the health department, 19 new cases of dengue were reported in the city on Tuesday. The total figure of positive cases has now reached 65.
"The number of cases has increased drastically. Initially the situation was under control, but the alarming number of cases appearing in a day is a source of concern," said Dr GL Sodi, in-charge of Integrated Disease Surveillance Project, Indore.
"We have taken all precautions, but the disease is spreading at a fast pace. Even if figures are to be counted, one will find that all the cases are spread across the city. Not even a single place in the city has a repeated case of dengue," added Dr Sodi.
However, the health department has issued notifications to all government health officials to create awareness about the disease. Also they have been asked to keep a check on their respective areas.
