LAHORE – A considerable decrease in the mercury level due to prevailing wet conditions has provided a more conducive atmosphere for the carrier of dengue virus (Aedes aegypti) to flourish, increasing chances of people falling prey to the deadly disease.  The recent wet spell has caused daytime temperature to drop to as low as 28 degree Celsius. The nights are already cool while high humidity has increased chances of mosquito bite. Because of this reason, dengue fever cases are surfacing on a daily basis with gradual increase in the number of patients across the province including the more vulnerable Lahore.  On Saturday, two more dengue fever patients were reported from the City, bringing the overall tally to 33. Muhammad Shabbir (40), a resident of Allama Iqbal Town, was tested positive for the deadly virus at Jinnah Hosital. Muhammad Asif (20) of Texali Gate was diagnosed as dengue patient at Mayo Hospital.
