Several doctors, health workers and general public were found to be suffering from dengue fever at AIIMS, amid increasing dengue cases in Delhi. Of these, at least twelve people are from the institute who contracted dengue during the last one week. Some journalists were also admitted due to dengue infection.

Similarly, the number of patients infected with dengue has also increased in Safdarjung Hospital. However, doctors say that the effect of the infection has been seen despite not being confirmed in the test reports of some dengue patients. So they are treated on the basis of symptoms.
