          Assam: Mosquitoes kill 23 amid flood, COVID-19 crisis
          Rahul KarmakarGUWAHATI:, JULY 21, 2020 20:16 IST
          UPDATED: JULY 21, 2020 20:42 IST
          ...
          Officials said there are multiple reasons, including under-reporting of cases for the “seemingly encouraging” figure compared to other concurrent killers — floods and landslides that have claimed 113 human lives, and coronavirus (COVID-19) that accounted for 58 deaths till Tuesday morning.


          Japanese encephalitis (JE) and malaria kill scores in Assam every year, specifically during the “flood season” that usually starts in May and can stretch to October.

          The State has reported a total of 23 deaths due to vector-borne diseases till July 20 this year. JE claimed 21 lives while two people died of malaria.
