Vector control teams from Bhopal roamed through the posh Char Imli area of the city for the second day in a bid to control the rise of dengue cases.

The health department continued with their meetings on measures to control dengue and vector spread in the posh area as well as surrounding places of Bhopal for the second straight day, reported The Times Of India.
