The Deputy Chief Minister said that the chances of mosquito breeding are high due to waterlogging after the rains. In such a situation, spraying of antilarva should be done and arrangements for fogging should be made. In the areas where mosquitoes are breeding due to water filling the vacant plot, notice should be issued to that plot owner and ensure its cleanliness.
Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak also directed to set up dengue wards in all hospitals. He said that patients should be kept in mosquito nets at all costs, so that other patients can be saved from dengue. Instructions have also been given to make better arrangements for medicines and dengue in hospitals.
Dengue is caused by the bite of the Aedes aegypti mosquito. In this, there is a rash on the body along with high fever.

Dengue and isolation wards should be set up in all medical colleges, district hospitals for effective prevention of communicable diseases.
