Five patients breathed their last after contracting the dengue virus in Karachi while the tally of dengue-infected people has jumped to 1100 across Sindh, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

A recent spike in the cases of dengue virus infection has put a challenge for health professionals.

The medical experts warned the clean water should not be accumulated inside and outside the houses and also recommended keeping the utensils covered.

Moreover, three dengue cases were reported in Hyderabad in the last 48 hours. A special ward has been set up to treat dengue patients in Hyderabad Civil Hospital.

The weather office has predicted more rains in the ongoing monsoon spell while experts cautioned for proper disposal of rainwater to avoid the dengue fever that has again surged in the port city.
