The dengue fever has reached an alarming rate in India.

Due to poor maintenance since the very beginning, the fever has killed over 100.

Also, Doctor says that most of the cases are reported from cantonment and federal capital areas followed by the lack of proper preventive measures by the concerned authority.

However, the department says that they had issues while reaching sensitive areas.

The report says that they have formed a group of eight to reach to affected areas, especially tamol and sabji Mandi areas.
