The number of dengue patients in the Colombo, Gampaha, Matale and Vavuniya districts have increased once again compared to September figures, said Dengue Control Unit Consultant Community Physician Dr. Nimalka Pannilahetti.

According to Health Ministry figures, in September, 196 cases were reported from the Colombo district and in October it was 360.
