The deaths include 201 so far this month.

During the first 19 days in November, according to the figure reported by the DGHS under the Ministry of Health, 30,080 more dengue cases were recorded after 67,769 people were infected with the mosquito-borne disease last month.

The total number of recovered patients in the South Asian country stood at 294,757 including 1,522 new recoveries on Sunday, said the DGHS.

Bangladesh experienced its highest spike in dengue cases in September, with 79,598 new infections and 396 deaths reported.

Dengue fever, transmitted through the bite of an Aedes mosquito, causes an acute illness that usually follows symptoms such as headache, high fever, exhaustion, severe muscle and joint pain, swollen glands, vomiting and rash.
