24 die of Dengue in 7-8 months in Bengal”

Kolkata: Accusing the West Bengal government of trying to cover up the dengue outbreak in the state as "unknown fever", Left Front legislative party leader Sujan Chakraborty on Wednesday wrote to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee urging her to take necessary action in the case.

"There are reports that several people are down with dengue and several have died because of the disease".

He said Banerjee was very happy after receiving compliments from the Federation Internationale de Football Association for renovating the Salt Lake stadium. She also cautioned people against a section of private pathological laboratories and nursing homes for fanning dengue panic after the NS 1 reactive test results. "This is the culture of West Bengal", she added. "Recently, 14 people died of dengue, and the other deaths were reported in the last 7-8 months", Banerjee said. "The government will take action against those who try to instigate", she said.

Speaking to reporters, the chief minister stressed that chief minister stressed that the health department and the municipal bodies, including KMC, would scale up their drive. Health secretary Anil Verma said there's not much demand for blood platelets, which indicated that dengue was less lethal this season. There were no fatalities, she said.
