Female workers hired for Anti-dengue awareness campaign in Taxila

Taxila administration, fearing an outbreak of the resurgent dengue virus in Taxila and its adjoining areas, has enlisted the services of as many as 30 female health workers for indoor surveillance and creating awareness among household women in the city. Says a news report published in English daily, which informed that the number of dengue patients rose to 21 this weekend.

“An effective strategy has been devised to deal with the possible outbreak, and all provincial departments are working in a coordinated manner to counter the disease’s spread,” said Assistant Commissioner Shahid Imran.
He expressed that a tehsil emergency response committee has been formed to make efforts to control dengue, adding the committee was assisting various departments.

The Assistant Commissioner was of the view that volunteers are working in high-risk areas as dengue larva has been found from domestic sources, while no case has been reported from any commercial area.
He further said fogging had been carried out in high-risk area, especially Sarai Kala, Mohallah Mashraqiabad and Jameelabad. Indoor residual spraying has also been carried out, he concluded.
