The national capital Tuesday reported two dengue deaths. A 25-year-old man suffering from the disease died at the St. Stephen’s hospital here Monday. The health officials, however, are not counting it in the official dengue toll of the capital saying the patient was not a Delhi resident and had come to Delhi for treatment.
The health department said that the second death reported Tuesday – of a 22-year-old man was also because of dengue but he was not confirmed to be a Delhi resident. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) is yet to confirm this death.
Before these, two more deaths were reported from the capital — one of a 15-year-old boy and the other of a nine-year-old boy.
