The Director of the National Dengue Eradication Centre (NDEC), Dr. Anura Jayasekara said though the number of those infected by the disease compared to last year had declined in 2021, there could be an escalation of the illness during the next few weeks if preventive measures are not promptly taken. He stated that as symptoms of both COVID-19 and dengue were similar, those infected by the latter disease should seek medical attention at the earliest if its spread is to be curbed efficiently.
