BMC plan for protect Dengue.

Bhubaneswar:24/7/17: Calling for a greater awareness for the diseases after the pre-monsoon rains in and around the city, experts at a meeting at BMC Conference Hall called for intense strategy on dengue as several cases have started cropping up across the city.

Saying that floating population in and around the city is partly responsible for the throwing of plastic cups, “use and throw’’ articles, which later help in creating stagnant water pools where Aedes mosquitoes lay eggs and proliferate, Dr. Rajendra Kumar Mallick, Deputy Director National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVVDCP), Odisha said “we need to educate citizens on little known facts about Dengue.

BMC Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena, who was chairing the meeting also called for a sustained awareness campaign on making people aware about the three Dengue testing centres in the State Capital.

Besides Health and Family Welfare Departments line departments like PHEO, PWD, School and Mass Education Department, representative of NVVDCP and NHM were present in the meeting.

It can be mentioned here that while urban development related issues, industrialisation and construction activities are contributing towards Dengue spread, 85 percent of Dengue in and around the city is related to travel history of the patient.

The meeting also discussed diseases like Malaria and Diarrhoea besides the management of Dengue. Deputy Mayor K. Shanti and senior officials of BMC also attended the meeting.
