DNCC launches 2nd phase of ‘combing operation’

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

The Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) yesterday launched the second phase of its ‘combing operation’ against dengue-carrying Aedes mosquitoes in the capital. The initiative has been taken to find out the breeding ground of Aedes and destroy it under DNCC’s jurisdiction areas. While inaugurated the programme at the second gate of Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur DNCC Mayor Atiqul Islam term the operation as ‘final drive’ and promised to impose fines on residents for the presence of Aedes larva in their premises or unhygienic surroundings.

After inaugurating the programme he said, “We sought cooperation from people during the first round of the drive after Aedes larva was found in their premises. It won’t happen this time. This time we’ll impose a fine if we find Aedes larva.”

The mayor also urged the city dwellers to keep their houses, workplaces, mosques, madrasas, schools, college and business establishments clean.

“We want to keep the city clean, but the city corporation cannot do it alone. We need the help of every citizen. It will be possible if the people in the city become aware,” said the DNCC mayor.

DNCC initiated the first 10 days combing operation on Aug 20 against Aedes mosquito to contain the massive outbreak of dengue fever in the country.

According to DNCC, it visited 121,560 houses and structures and found Aedes larva in 1,957 of them. In addition, the DNCC found stagnant water—the perfect breeding ground for Aedes mosquito—in 67,306 houses and structures.
