A housewife died of mosquito-borne disease dengue in Sadar upazila early Friday.

The deceased was identified as Shahanara Khatun, 37, wife of Khalilur Rahman of Choygharia village in the upazila.

Dr Abu Shaheen, Satkhira Civil Surgeon, said Shahanara was admitted to Sadar Hospital after being diagnosed with dengue on August 18.
