New Delhi, Aug 19: At least 4000 dengue cases had been reported in New Delhi, especially in Jamia and Okhla, the worst hit region in the capital.

According to CNN-IBN, almost every house in south Delhi's Jamia Nagar had reported at least one case of dengue.

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) had finally confirmed a dengue outbreak in south Delhi's Jamia Nagar.

As the channel report, awareness programmes had been started to increase the general consciousness among the people.

Disinfectants are being sprayed on the roads and waterlogged manholes are cleaned up to prevent mosquito breeding.

Residents of the area, however, complain that the anti-dengue drive ends right at the main road. There are hundreds of side lanes which are left out from the cleaning drive.

The residents were outraged, enraged and vulnerable over the government's move to tackle dengue.

Earlier the channel report about that Ansari family, who had lost their 25-year-old daughter Shabana to dengue.

Now two more children in their family have been confirmed to have dengue.
