Dengue has spread in the city. The disease afflicts the population between onset of monsoon till winter end. Nagpur Municipal Corporation has turned a blind eye to the problem. NMC Deputy Director of Health Dr Savita Meshram says there is no reason to panic as there has been only one death due to the disease this year.

The places worst affected by dengue is outskirts of the city and slums where there is accumulation of water and hence a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Though NMC claims to have taken enough measures like fogging, fumigation and awareness drives to fight dengue but doctors reports share a different story.

Dengue can occur in three forms dengue fever, which does not have many complications; dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF), where a person suffers from very high fever; and dengue shock syndrome (DSS).

Dengue is a threat to the health and with the slagging approach of NMC officials it will be difficult to control the disease. It would be better to seek doctors help if any one has high fever or any type of symptoms which causes discomfort.
