Chikungunya cases in Mumbai touch 5-year high
The incidence of chikungunya in the city has touched a five-year high this year with 60 confirmed cases being reported so far.
The disease situation though is remarkably better than Pune that has reported nearly 2,500 cases. The first few cases of the `breakbone fever' were reported in October followed by a steady stream of patients through November and December.

In 2012, there were 31confirmed cases that rose to 37 in 2013 and dipped to 20 in 2014....
