Three have died due to brain fever, one at Nilaveli refugee camp and others at Morawewa and Uppuveli in the past two months, medical sources said.

As the rainy season has started, the outbreak of dengue fever is expected in low-lying areas due to water stagnation, which is the breeding ground for mosquitoes, health authorities have warned.
