THANJAVUR: Dengue would be brought under control in another 10 to 15 days, Tamil Nadu Health Minister C Vijayabaskar said today.

Incidents of dengue fever have come down in Kancheepuram, Thiruvallur, Chennai and Thanjavur districts, the minister told reporters after visiting the Thanjavur medical college hospital.

He inspected the wards and spoke to patients affected by dengue.
