Dengue, Chikungunya seems to be stopping in comparison to other districts in the capital Bhopal. However, the number of dengue patients in Bhopal has reached close to five hundred.
In the investigation conducted in five different labs on Tuesday, only five patients were found, which together the number has reached 495. Of these, 390 patients have been found in September and October. Within a day or two, the number of patients can reach five hundred. On the other hand, the number of Chikungunya patients has also increased to 91 this year.

Number will decrease further in winter
District Malaria Officer Akhilesh Dubey said that the number of patients getting daily for almost a week is less than five. Patients have decreased due to less rain and larva killing activities. He said that with the increase in cold, the number of patients will further reduce. Only a few patients will be found till Diwali. However, even after reducing the number of patients, there is no reduction in larvae. 44 teams of health department are conducting larvae survey in the city. Larvae survey is being done in about 1300 houses every day. Of these, larvae are being found in 10 to 12 percent of the houses.
