Speaking to reporters here on July 17, the DC said  352 cases of dengue fever have been reported in the district  and added that   200 of them are recovering. This month more Dengue cases were reported from Gujjarakere, Jeppu  in Mangaluru, Kadaba and other places.

The DC urged the people to ensure that there was no stagnation of rain water anywhere as this would reduce nearly 85% of the Dengue cases.

In June, 75 Dengue cases were reported, he informed and added that last year  200 Dengue cases were reported. The DC also sought the co-operation of the public in checking the spread of dengue.

Dengue causing mosquitoes which bite  during day time fly at a lower level, he said adding  mosquito nets, coconut oil and other mosquito repellent creams to prevent mosquito bites.

MCC Commissioner Mohammad Nazeer and other officials were present.
