Despite several cases of dengue being reported in Dimapur, District Vector-borne Diseases Control Officer Dr Moa has informed that three dengue cases have been confirmed.

However, there were cases reported in other private hospitals, but no one has reported the matter to them, being the Nodal Department. In a statement, Dr Moa said out of the three cases, two patients have been confirmed to have contracted the fever from 'local' source while one was yet to be verified

Emphasising on "source reduction" as key towards preventing a dengue outbreak, Dr Moa added that the disease can be prevented through concerted effort by following the guidelines issued by the department and by keeping the house and surroundings clean.

Meanwhile, the Dimapur public have been requested to collect free Larvivorous Fish (Guppy Fish) from the departmental hatchery (CMO office) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1000 hrs to 1200 hrs and seed in their surrounding drainage to eat mosquito larvae, which will help control and minimize mosquito breeding.
