Mangaluru: “There is an outbreak of the dengue in the district and some people have lost their lives because of the same. I have been in constant touch with DC Sasikanth Senthil to take all kinds of preventive measures to tackle dengue,” said Mangaluru south MLA Vedavyasa Kamath informing that he and MLA Dr Bharat Y Shetty will take the initiative to form teams at booth level to create awareness on the preventive measures to be taken to control dengue.

The MLA was speaking at a meeting with the health, MCC officials, chaired by Deputy Commissioner (DC) Sasikanth Senthil with regards to the control of dengue epidemic on Thursday, August 1.

“We will now form a team in every booth and ward to conduct awareness among the people about dengue and hunt larvae. They will be given training by the health officials and this drive by the members in the booth level will begin from August 4. People should be aware of dengue and take all kind of preventive measures,” said the MLA and stressed to focus on the unutilized land, where water gets accumulated and gives scope for mosquito breeding.

Speaking at the meeting the DC said, “We have formed different teams such as data and planning team, surveillance and source reduction team, awareness creating team and municipal cleaning team. They are working in several places as we have formed 104 grids within the MCC limits. We are stressing on larvae reduction and have controlled it to a level.”

Mr Senthil spoke regarding Gujjarakere and said, “We have tested the water at Gujjarakere. There are no larvae of dengue mosquito now. Firstly, people should understand that these mosquitoes breed inside the house. We are also conducting Guppy fish drive as one of the measures to control mosquitoes.”
