Two cases of dengue have been detected in Tiruchy city, both of whom are being treated in private hospitals. Health officials claimed that the patients hailed from other districts and not Tiruchy, indicating that they picked up the ailment elsewhere. The inference: there is no dengue outbreak as such in Tiruchy.

City Health officer Dr B Alli said the two cases were from Madurai and Chennai. Corporation staff were proactively engaged in prevention of mosquito breeding through fogging in the city, she said.

Meanwhile, in Madurai, Corporation officials sealed six residential buildings, in which construction work was being carried out without the approval of the Town Planning Department, here on Saturday. The officials said the basement of the buildings had become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. “They found water stagnating in the basement and mosquitoes were breeding in it,” Town Planning Officer M Rakkappan said. The buildings were near a school, where a few dengue cases were already found.
