Joint director of health services, Kamrup (Metro) Ganesh Saikia informed that no Chikungunya case has been reported so far. Further, officials informed that medicated mosquito nets have not been distributed this year since there has been a negligible incidence of Malaria.

While the actual Dengue season starts from October onwards, the district health authorities have already started creating awareness among people through organized camps.
