Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayeed Khokon yesterday said that there is nothing to get panicky though there has been some increases in the number of dengue-affected patients this year comparing to past two/three years, reports UNB. Speaking at the inauguration of a crash course on identifying the larvae of Aedes mosquitoes and its extermination measures, Khokon said that this year, there are no Chikungunya cases as opposed to last year.

He requested the people to raise awareness by removing abandoned tires, flower tubs, stored air conditioner water from their homes.

The Mayor also instructed everyone not to allow water to be stored at a specific location for more than five days, as doing so may increase the risk of Aedes mosquito breeding.

BSS adds: The mayor inaugurated the programme in the capital’s Easkaton Garden area by spraying fume from a fogger machine at an under-construction Navy information-centre building.

The crash programme will simultaneously continue at 57 wards across the city, he said, adding that the representatives of the city corporation would go from house to house and destroy Aedes mosquito larvae and clear up their breeding grounds.

Khokan said they also will make the city dwellers aware of the dangers of Aedes mosquito breeding and its outbreak. He urged the Dhaka North City Corporation to launch a similar programme to eradicate dengue, saying mosquito has no specific abode as they migrate from one place to another.

Seeking cooperation from all to address dengue, the DSCC mayor said a dengue-free city would be presented to its city dwellers soon with the combined efforts.
