Bhubaneswar: Orissa on Saturday cancelled the leave of doctors working in three state-run medical colleges after a spurt in dengue cases in 11 of the state's 30 districts.

The three medical college-cum-hospitals, which are also the main testing centres for the mosquito-borne disease, are in Cuttack, Berhampur and Burla towns.

"There was no report of any death Friday. However, 54 new positive cases have been reported," a senior state health official said.

He said 82 samples were tested in Sri Ram Chandra Bhanja Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack, 26 km from here, Friday and 54 of them were found positive.

With the latest cases, the total number of people infected by the virus in the state in about a fortnight has increased to 132, he said.
