Confirmed case of Dengue in our Area

We have just confirmed one case of Dengue in a patient from Blk 862A today. The child developed a rash all over the body which was initially thought to be due to an allergy. But blood tests eventually confirmed it to be due to Dengue.

Please be extra vigilant to check around your area for stagnant water and to take measures to prevent your family members from being bitten by the mosquitos.
