Mysore/Mysuru: Following a spike in dengue cases, Mysuru-Kodagu MP Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar, accompanied by City BJP President and former MLA L. Nagendra and District Health Officer Dr. P.C. Kumaraswamy, visited the District Hospital on KRS Road in Metagalli to take stock of the situation yesterday.

Speaking to the media, MP Yaduveer expressed satisfaction with the treatment being provided to dengue patients. He added that he would soon chair a meeting with district-level officers to discuss measures to control the spread of dengue.
