July 28 to be observed as ‘Dengue Drive Day’ in Mangalore: DC Sasikanth Senthil

July 27: Deputy Commissioner S Sasikanth Senthil has appealed the public to observe July 28 (Sunday) as ‘Dengue Drive Day’.
DC Senthil while addressing mediapersons during the ‘Meet The Press’ programme on friday, July 26 stressed that people should check for mosquito larvae on their house premises between 10 am to 11 am and should destroy stagnant water with the collective goal of source reduction. He has even requested the people to check for breeding sites in their house premises on weekly basis and destroy mosquito larvae.
DC mentioned that the breeding places of dengue causing the mosquito, are found within the house premises. Therefore, the enemy inside the house should be destroyed first. He said intermittent rain has resulted in excessive breeding of mosquitoes this year.
As per the information received on July 25, 482 dengue cases have been recorded in the district. Of these, 400 people have recovered. The city has been divided into 100 grids. Three high risk clusters Jeppu, Kodialbail and Kadri are being monitored extensively. The breeding sites have been destroyed in these areas.
