Chief medical officer (CMO) Dr Manoj Agrawal said, "All the patients are stable and recuperating at home."

He said that hospitals have been told to screen all fever patients for dengue.

The female Aedes Aegypti is the carrier of dengue virus and lays eggs in fresh water accumulated in and around houses.

Experts have advised people to take due precautions as dengue cases may surge further due to waterlogging after the post monsoon rains.

Meanwhile, the health department officials found the larvae of the Aedes aegypti mosquito in seven houses in Hussainabad and Indira Nagar areas.
