Dengue surge is being witnessed all over Delhi and in Delhi NCR as well. As per reports by the health department, on Monday, Gurugram reported 22 fresh dengue cases in 24 hours. The first case of dengue this year was reported in the month of July and ever since then, every week the area has recorded as least 10 cases. Last month, a total of 147 cases were reported but there have been no fatalities so far. This sudden spike is because of the heavy rains and water logging caused by the rains. The entire region of Delhi and Delhi NCR experienced incessant rainfall for four days.

Due to this, fresh water has accumulated in several places in the city. People have been advised to keep a check in their homes as well as neighborhood areas to ensure that there are no breeding grounds for mosquitoes. They have also been advised to take precautionary measures and wear full sleeved clothes.
