    Delhi Health Minister Saurabh Bhardwaj has taken action to address the increasing threat of dengue in Delhi. He has directed all municipal corporations (MCDs) to send workers to people’s homes to prevent mosquito larvae breeding. So far, there have been 350 dengue cases reported in Delhi, with an additional 105 cases in August alone. To accommodate these patients, hospitals have set aside 5% of their beds for dengue patients.

    Bhardwaj also mentioned that the department had requested advertisements to raise awareness about dengue, but they were not released intentionally. He believes there might be a conspiracy to keep people unaware. Despite his repeated statements, adverts are not being published in newspapers or on television.
