New Delhi: Three fresh cases of dengue were reported in the national capital in the past one week, taking the total number of cases of the vector-borne disease this year to nine.

Earlier, in the month of January, six dengue cases were recorded, even though the season for the vector-borne diseases had ended. The rest were recorded in the last week of February.

 

As per a civic report released on Monday, two cases of malaria and three cases of chikungunya, both in February, were reported.

The cases of vector-borne diseases are usually reported between mid-July and November-end, but this period may stretch up to mid-December.

The doctors said the cases don’t indicate early arrival of the virus in Delhi. “These are the lingering cases. Actually, the vector-borne diseases are seen throu-ghout the year. In fact, there are a cluster of cases that come during the season, otherwise dengue cases are seen over the year,” said Dr A. Kakar, senior consultant, SGRH hospital.
