Mayor Taposh urges all to provide information on breeding grounds of dengue mosquitoes by calling control room numbers

To eradicate dengue larvae in Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) areas, a control room will be opened on Monday, said DSCC Mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh.

The mayor said this at Nagar Bhaban on Sunday while addressing a meeting on measures to control dengue.

"It is not possible to eradicate Aedes mosquitoes without destroying the source. We will now go from house to house and destroy the sources,” he said.

Mayor Taposh called on the people of Dhaka to provide information about the breeding grounds of dengue mosquitoes simply by dialling the control room numbers, 01709900888 and 029556014.

Meanwhile, the chief guest at the meeting, Local Government and Rural Development (LGRD) Minister Md TaZul Islam instructed all the councillors of the city corporation to eradicate Aedes mosquitoes and bring dengue to a tolerable level within the next two weeks.

He said: "Even after repeated warnings, people are not becoming aware. The government's job is to make people aware and the government is constantly doing that."

The government will not be able to protect the people unless they are aware of it, the LGRD minister also said.

However, the DSCC mayor blamed the increase in dengue patients in the south city on pollution.

The mayor said if the dengue eradication drive runs successfully from Monday it would be possible to bring down the number of dengue patients to nil.
