Among the new patients, 169 were admitted to government and private hospitals in Dhaka while the remaining 15 cases were reported from outside the Dhaka division.

According to the DGHS, 9,304 patients have been diagnosed with dengue this year and 40 of them died.

Some 1,032 patients diagnosed with dengue fever are receiving treatment in the country as of Friday morning, the DGHS said.

Of them, 905 patients are receiving treatment at different hospitals in the capital while the remaining 127 were listed outside Dhaka.

Health authorities have been recording over 200 dengue cases per day since August 1 which seemed to have  declined in the last 24 hours.
