"Out of the 85 wards in the city, 10 wards account for 85 per cent of these dengue cases. These places are Teela Jamalpura, Halalpura, Peergate, Budhwara, Kamla Nagar, Saket Nagar, AIIMS hostel, Katara Hill, Barkheda Pathani and Harshvardhan Nagar," he said, adding that these areas were closely being monitored.
A total of 39 teams, consisting of two to three doctors each, have been formed to monitor areas where more such cases have been reported, he said.
Dr.  Dubey said the mosquitoes that cause dengue fever are usually stinging and usually live in and around homes and reproduce in standing water. This viral infection is mainly reported in urban areas, but is now being detected in rural areas as well, he said. 

“ In urban areas, these mosquitoes thrive in standing water accumulated in objects like coolers, money plant pots and trays. But now since people in rural areas also have these applications, the infection is being reported from there as well,” the DMO said 

Dr. Dubey advised people to take a number of measures to prevent dengue fever, such as: Mosquito nets for sleeping, wearing long-sleeved clothes, changing water in containers at houses every seven days.
