CUTTACK: A 69-year-old man has been diagnosed with dengue and admitted to a private hospital here.

 A resident of Haldia in West Bengal, Dillip Kumar Basu had come to visit his son and daughter-in-law, who live in a rented house at Madhusudan Nagar, earlier this month. 

Basu was admitted to a private hospital here after his condition deteriorated on July 20. He has been tested dengue positive but is stated to be stable and recovering.

Civic authorities said Basu had contracted the dengue virus outside and the disease manifested here. He had been to Puttaparthi before coming to Cuttack and had stayed there for quite some time. He fell ill immediately after coming to the Millennium City.

Collector Girish SN and CMC Commissioner Gyana Das visited the locality to take stock of the situation. An action plan has been drawn to prevent and tackle dengue this year.

Dengue prevention measures have begun across all wards in the city, Das said. Over 1,000 persons were afflicted with dengue in Cuttack district last year.
