ISLAMABAD, SEPTEMBER 23 - 10 thousand cases of dengue virus in Pakistan have exceeded 10,000. This was stated by Zafar Mirza, advisor to the first Minister of Health at a press conference in Islamabad, stating that the number of patients suffering from the virus transmitted by a particular mosquito rose to 10,013. 70% of these are located in the province of Punjab. But the statistics - the expert warned - recorded increases from day to day. The government has noted the inadequacy of the measures taken so far to counter the epidemic and has ordered further investigations to understand the reason for its acceleration.
