Mumbai: A three-year-old girl Manaswi Mangesh Devrukhkar died today of dengue in Holy Spirit Hospital taking the current death toll in the last one month to 12.
Manaswi was admitted to the hospital with dengue symptoms on Wednesday.
Her father Mangesh Devrukhkar is a resident of Andheri East.
Nearly 4,000 Mumbaikars were suffering from dengue fever in October alone, say BMC officials.
The fever is so widespread that the civic-run KEM Hospital in Parel has become a hotspot for dengue-spreading mosquitoes Aedes Aegypti.
On Monday night, a 26-year-old woman Nisha Chavan, resident of Tardeo, died of dengue in Dalvie Hospital on Peddar Road. She was the 10th dengue victim this year.
