Shimla, Sep 23: Two more people died of scrub typhus today in Himachal Pradesh, taking this years toll to 16, an official said.

A 19-year-old woman from Mohal in Kullu died at a hospital here on September 20, said Senior Medical Superintendent of the Indira Gandhi medical college Hospital (IGMC) Romesh.

A 48-year-old man from Kotkhai in Shimla district, who was admitted to the IGMC on September 19 died today, he said.
