A campaign was even carried out on a war-footing to pump out the water but in vain. Many people have fallen victim to vector-borne diseases such as chikungunya, malaria, dengue, and viral fever.

Till Tuesday, 2,175 dengue cases have been reported in Patna alone while the number of Dengue cases has reached 2,925 across the state, government data showed.

Data from the Ministry of Home Affairs shows that 161 people died in Bihar in monsoon this year, while 1,26,000 people had to flee their homes.
