One more patient died of dengue, a mosquito-borne disease, in Khulna district yesterday. The deceased was identified as Sabita, 40, wife of Haradhan, hailing from Keshabpur upazila of Jashore district.  She passed away while undergoing treatment at the Khulna Medical College Hospital (KMCH) in a critical condition early yesterday.

Besides dengue disease, she was also suffering from heart disease, said Dr Shailendra Nath Biswas, residential physician of KMCH. Meanwhile, the health department has confirmed another five deaths from dengue fever, bringing the total number of fatalities in the country since January to 112. The disease, however, was first detected in the country back in 2000, while at least 93 people died.
