With heavy rainfall in the Capital and other regions, mosquitoes are flourishing with each passing day resulting in more and more people falling prey to vector borne diseases such as chikungunya and dengue. Just like in every monsoon season, the number of people infected by the diseases has increased. Both chikungunya and dengue are viral diseases that are transmitted by the Aedes mosquitoes.


In rural areas of Pune, many cases of chikungunya were found  in  hospitals . In the patients,  detection of NS1 Antigen and IgM Chikungunya antibodies are  tested to detect the illnesses.
