Bara, September 10
Bara’s Jitpur Simara sub-metropolis is going to launch a two-week campaign to control dengue.
The sub-metropolis’ Disaster Management Committee decided to launch the campaign starting tomorrow with the view of preventing the dengue outbreak that has gripped the entire country of late. “The campaign will be lunched in all 24 wards of the sub-metropolis with the initiative of ward committees.
As per the campaign, sanitation and awareness programmes will be launched with the participation of various organisations, clubs, journalists, traders, social activists, teachers, businesspersons and the local communities,” said Mayor Krishna Poudel.
“While the health facilities, both government and private, have been told to do what they can in order to control the fast increasing mosquito-borne disease, preparations have been made to sprinkle insecticides to kill mosquitoes,” he said.
Simara Primary Health Centre chief Dr Anus Thal said the locals should destroy the potential habitat of the mosquito to control dengue.
