As per the statistics of dengue cases from December 01 to 19, released by the Sindh Health Department on Tuesday, 615 cases of dengue hemorrhagic fever were reported in the province.

The cases of dengue hemorrhagic fever are declining in the province owing to plunging minimum temperature in winter weather conditions.

In Karachi’s District Central 126 cases of dengue fever reported, while in District East 124 cases, District South 67 cases, District Korangi 71 cases, in the city’s West district, 43 cases and 35 cases were reported in Malir district, according to the health department report.
