July 29: Deputy Commissioner had appealed to the public to observe Sunday, July 28 as Dengue Drive Day. This campaign was flagged off at the  DC’s official residence in Balmatta.
Deputy Commissioner S Sasikanth Senthil has mentioned that Public can control dengue and malaria in an effective way by clearing stagnant water and destroying mosquito larvae. He also said that finding mosquito breeding places and destroying larvae is an effective way to control  mosquitoes. DC said that people have a wrong notion that fogging will eliminate mosquitoes but when fogging is carried out, mosquitoes will enter the houses and more people end up being bitten by the infected mosquitoes.

District Health Officer Dr Ramakrishna, activist Suresh Shetty, District Information and Publicity Department Assistant Director B A Khader Shah and others accompanied the deputy commissioner in tracing and destroying places with stagnant water and mosquito larvae. Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr R Selvamani along with Mangalore  City Corporation (MCC) Joint Commissioner Gayathri Nayak carried out Dengue Drive Day campaign on Zilla Panchayat office premises. Many places containing stagnant water were detected in the area.
Senthil also inaugurated the awareness drive against dengue at City Centre Mall in Mangalore on Sunday, where the students of Srinivas University performed a flash mob on the occasion.
