No alternative to awareness in Dengue control: DNCC Mayor
Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Atiqul Islam on Sunday laid emphasis on creating awareness among country people to tackle the menace of mosquito-borne diseases Dengue and Chikunguniya.
"If we're not aware about the situation, no initiative of the city corporation will bring any result," said the Mayor after a rally organised to create awareness among the people.
Uttara Club in association with the Rotary Club organised the brief rally following a procession that paraded different streets of uttara.
He informed that different hospitals are providing 'Dengue kits' to the patients at free of cost to detect Dengue fever.
Calling upon the city dwellers to engage with the city corporation in eliminating Aedes mosquito, Atiqul urged all to phone the DNCC authorities if the employees are found negligent in doing their duties.
"There will be seven representatives from the dwellers in each ward. They will have to collect signatures of at least four representatives after spraying insecticides," he added.
