First confirmed Dengue death in Andhra Pradesh

The health officials reported on Sunday the first death caused by dengue fever in Andhra Pradesh. Several other cases are being reported// from different parts of the state.

Venkateswara Rao, director (medical and health) confirmed the death of the person from Puttaparthi in Anantapur district. Two cases in Hyderabad, one in Khammam and one in Srikakulam districts are confirmed dengue cases.

To manage the mosquito menace and check the situation, a task force has been formed consisting of officials of various departments and is leaded by the principal secretary (health). The anti-larval operations have been increased by the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad after 2 confirmed cases and 18 other suspected cases of dengue were reported here.
