    40% increase in Dengue cases in 2024

    Mahadevpura and East Bengaluru are hubs for spread of Dengue

    South Bengaluru has become a Chikungunya hotspot

The threat of dengue has been looming around Bengaluru. More than 1000 cases have been recorded in the last 20 days. This marks an increase of 40% in comparison to the previous year. The irregular spells of rain and the cold winds are reported to be the reasons for this development. The anomaly in weather is the reason for the spread of Dengue and other contagious diseases. 

There have been 2457 cases recorded since January 1st. The number of Chikungunya cases in the same period is 109. Mahadevpura and East Bengaluru have been sites where the prevalence of Dengue is higher. South Bengaluru on the other hand has become a hotspot for Chikungunya. The stagnation of water owing to the increasing construction work being undertaken is cited as the reason for the increase in Chikungunya cases. Dr. Syed Sirajuddin Madni, Chief Health Officer (Public Health), Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) provided an update in this regard.
