Delhi: Seven die of dengue in 3 days

New Delhi, Oct 5 : At least seven people have died of dengue in the last three days in New Delhi, said reports on Saturday.


According to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), seven people have died while as many as 430 cases of dengue have been reported in the last three days.

So far, 2,557 people have been detected with dengue virus.

Dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever, is an infectious tropical disease caused by the dengue virus.

Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash that is similar to measles.

In a small proportion of cases the disease develops into the life-threatening dengue hemorrhagic fever, resulting in bleeding, low levels of blood platelets and blood plasma leakage, or into dengue shock syndrome, where dangerously low blood pressure occurs.
