Taking to Twitter, PM Modi wrote, "This is the season of tropical and vector-borne diseases. I urge you all to take the right precautions. The government is also closely monitoring the situation and ensuring care to those affected. Stay safe, be happy!"

Meanwhile, Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan on Tuesday held a review meeting with Delhi government officials and the city's municipal corporations over the preparedness to check vector-borne diseases in the national capital.

"Today, I held a review meeting with officials of the Delhi government and city's municipal corporations over the preparedness to deal with vector-borne diseases like dengue, chikungunya, and malaria. It is important to take measures to control these diseases," said Dr Vardhan after the meeting.

The Union Minister said that the meeting was necessary as everyone was busy in battling COVID-19. "It was important to have a meeting so that vector-borne diseases are not ignored.
