Dengue is refusing to let go of its grip over Guwahati.
The number of cases doubled over the last 10 days, reaching 1,205 across the State.
The bulk of the positive cases were detected in Guwahati – the number till Friday being 1,075, according to the National Health Mission.
Dr K Nath, Assistant Director, National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP), Assam, told that September is the peak month during which maximum cases of dengue are reported. “The number of cases would come down by October,” he said.
He, however, said there was nothing to worry about as most of the patients have not even been admitted.
“Some who have got themselves admitted did so out of fear. Else, in majority of the cases admission into a hospital was not required,” Dr Nath said.
Two persons have died of dengue this year in the State.
