One new dengue case was reported in the last 24 hours till 8am on Tuesday, DGHS says

The Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) authority has conducted eight mobile courts as part of its anti-mosquito drive to destroy the breeding grounds of Aedes mosquitoes, responsible for dengue and Chikungunya.

The mobile courts were operated in Uttara, Mirpur, Badda, Asad Avenue, and Gulshan areas on Tuesday, according to a DNCC press release.

During the drive, various establishments and under-construction buildings in Mirpur and Gulshan areas were fined as larvae of Aedes mosquitoes were found there.  

Meanwhile, one new dengue case was reported in the last 24 hours till 8am on Tuesday, according to the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

Since the beginning of this year, 299 dengue cases were reported and of them 298 patients have been discharged.

Bangladesh experienced a massive dengue outbreak last year when 101,354 people were hospitalised. Of them, 101,037 made full recovery.

According to official figures, the mosquito-borne disease killed 179 people in 2019.

As the country struggles to contain the spread of coronavirus, a dengue outbreak at this time will be devastating and would pose a serious challenge to the country's health care system.
