Fighting the dengue menace

The residents of Dhaka city are suffering the most from the dengue menace despite DNCC and DSCC having a large budget for controlling the reproduction of mosquitoes. 

Though people don’t always comply with waste management, the authorities concerned are more responsible for this dengue outbreak. Irresponsible activities of the authorities accelerate the breeding of Aedes mosquitoes and our safety matters little to them. They don’t carry out door-to-door inspections, run comprehensive awareness programmes, or enforce punitive measures for violating laws.

Measures for larvae destruction, awareness programmes with community involvement and insecticide spray campaigns can bring this problem under control. But these measures must be continued to some extent throughout the year, not just during a crisis.
