Thu, Sep 28 : Dengue fever claimed the lives of at least 20 people, including a ninth class student, in Chittoor and Ananthapur districts, yesterday. All the appeals by people to officials, to declare health emergency and clean up the surroundings, fell on deaf years.

As such, many who are getting admitting to private hospitals, are forced to spend huge sums on doctors and medicines, with no result. They are being admitted to government hospitals, in serious condition and here there is no enough staff or equipment to deal with the cases.
