Forty new dengue patients were admitted to different hospitals across the country in the last 24 hours (till 8 am today).

With the new cases, the total number of dengue patients this year rose to 3,020 while 14 people died during the same time.

“As many as 40 dengue patients were hospitalized in Dhaka city and no patients admitted to outside Dhaka during the past 24 hours,” a press release of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) said Friday.

Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne illness that occurs in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. The outbreak of the disease is usually seasonal, peaking during and after rainy seasons. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies dengue as one of the top 10 threats to public health.
