Although the situation is not alarming currently, 35-40 cases are being seen daily, added Dr Shafi P, infectious diseases specialist. Dr Nandana Jasthi, senior consultant physician, Medicover Hospitals group, said that they were seeing around 50 dengue patients in a week of which 10 required admission due to low platelet count.
