A 70-year-old man from Deganga in North 24 Parganas allegedly died of dengue Tuesday.

Vanshidhari Hazra, who was suffering from high fever since Saturday, died at Kamarhati’s Sagar Dutta Hospital, sources said. Deganga, which has witnessed at least four dengue deaths in the last few days, is one of the worst-affected areas. “The situation in Deganga is bad. A large number of people, suffering from dengue, are getting admitted to hospitals. It is spreading from one village to another. Spraying of insecticides or bleaching powder is not helping in fighting the menace,” said a local resident.

The state government has claimed that so far 40 people have died due to dengue and a little over 20,000 have been infected with the vector-borne disease. The Opposition has been targeting the government, saying it is hiding the number of dengue deaths. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had claimed on Monday that her government was taking all measures to combat the situation.
