Delhi saw 163 dengue cases so far this year, 39 in past week ending 17 July 2023. Apart from dengue, 14 cases of chikungunya and 54 cases of malaria have also been reported. State and local health officials around the country are reporting the first cases of West Nile virus (New Mosquito borne disease) of the season in humans and urging people to take action to protect themselves from the mosquito-borne disease [1]. it is a matter of concern that due to the flood, water stagnation resulting in mosquito breeding places there is a big threat of more outbreaks of dengue, malaria and other VBDs in comparison to 2022. Heavy rains, water logging and mosquito breeding sites are the reason behind this outbreak of vector borne diseases (VBDs) [1].
