3 dengue deaths in the district: Citizens can take these measures to remain safe

July 20: Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner Sasikanth S Senthil said that three deaths and 404 Dengue cases have been confirmed in the district so far. 250 cases in Mangalore taluk, 42 cases in Bantwal taluk, 67 cases in Puttur taluk, 22 cases in Belthangady taluk and 23 cases in Sullia taluk have been confirmed.
Among the Dengue-effected people in the district, some have developed HLH complications, which is normally found in viral fever. But it is rare in Dengue. The complication results in white blood cells of the body destroying the red blood cells. The samples had been sent to Manipal Hospital for further laboratory investigations.
Fogging will be done inside the houses in Dengue affected areas. Fogging outside houses will result in Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes entering houses and taking shelter in dark corners of the house. They bite during the daytime.
The DC has mentioned that people should take precautionary measures by using mosquito nets, vaporisers and so on. People can do the fogging themselves by using ‘Sambrani’ and dry neem leaves. Neem oil repels mosquitoes and can be smeared on the body. The public need not panic.
Along with this, Senthil warned of imposing heavy fines on the owners of construction sites and commercial complexes who do not destroy the mosquito breeding sites in their places.
