On one hand Delhi state health minister Satyaeder Jain in a bizzare remark has said that nobody dies of chikungunya, on the other hand is the harsh reality that more than 11 chikungunya deaths have been reported. Doctors attending the patients say that chikungunya is not a life-threatening disease in general, but in rare cases leads to complications that prove fatal, especially in children and old persons. Most of them had associated co-morbid disease conditions and complications like chronic kidney disease, coronary artery disease, which affect the course of recovery.
