Devising anti-dengue micro plan for Rawalpindi

RAWALPINDI: DC Chaudhry Muhammad Ali Randhawa Tuesday directed officials to devise an effective anti-dengue micro plan keeping in view the changing weather condition.
Chairing a meeting to review anti-dengue arrangements, he said no dengue case has been detected in the new year but there is need to make a comprehensive plan for the ongoing year to prevent the spread of dengue larvae in the summer season as dengue larva is being found in large number during indoor and outdoor surveillance.
The DC said nothing is more precious than human life, and zero tolerance would be shown in dengue control activities.
He directed officials of the health department to create awareness among the people to keep their houses clean and leave no place wet or with stagnant water, adding that anti-dengue regulations are fully implemented and stern action be taken against those failing to comply with the laws.
Randhawa said necessary medicines along with the latest equipment would be provided to the health department to control dengue.
