The num­ber of dengue cases has gone up to 105,000 in Sri Lanka with more than 300 deaths, the Sri Lanka Red Cross So­ci­ety said on Tues­day. The Red Cross said that it is rapidly scal­ing up emer­gency as­sis­tance to help con­tain one of the coun­try’s worst out­break of dengue in re­cent times. The num­ber of cases this year is nearly dou­ble the num­ber of dengue in­fec­tions recorded in all of last year, when 55,150 peo­ple were di­ag­nosed with the dis­ease.
