Dengue cases increase in Dakshina Kannada: What needs to be done?

July 18: There has been an increase in the vector-borne viral infection cases in Dakshina Kannada from July 1. 352 people have been tested positive for dengue.
Deputy Commissioner Sasikanth Senthil said that all possible preventive measures have been taken to destroy the breeding places of mosquitoes in Mangalore and other parts of Dakshina Kannada district. He mentioned that there has been a rise in dengue cases this year and experts attribute this to poor rainfall. The decrease in rain has left the district with stagnant water in the surrounding of houses where mosquitoes breed.
DC stated that nearly 200 teams (with one health worker and two staff) have been constituted in Mangalore, to visit households and destroy the breeding ground of mosquitoes and also to create awareness among the people. A drive to clear such water stagnation in KSRTC bus stands and markets in Mangalore will be started by MCC soon. Along with this, a daily report from private hospitals on suspected cases have been sought, to monitor the situation. Educational institutions and hostels are directed to ensure that breeding of mosquitoes are checked in their premises. The MCC will also take up fogging inside the houses and appealed to the residents to cooperate.
DC mentioned that a special meeting of authorities from educational institutions will be convened on Thursday, July 18 to discuss on measures to check breeding of mosquitoes.
