Along with an increase in H1N1, monsoon season in India brings malaria. There have been 73 cases of malaria identified in the Pimpri-Chinchwad area. Public health officials are taking a firm stance; indicating that "strong action" will be taken should mosquito larva be found in private residences. Meanwhile, industrial and commercial areas are being fumigated in an effort to reduce the prevalence of malaria carrying mosquitoes.
