South civic body issues advisory to control mosquito menace 26.4.2017 DNA: Mumbai
In view of last year's massive outbreak of chikungunya in the Capital, the Municipal Corporations of Delhi are taking preventive measures well in advance. On Tuesday, the south civic body issued an advisory, calling upon educational institutions, workplaces, Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs), and market associations to not allow water to stagnate in their respective areas. As many as 79 cases of chikungunya have been reported in the Capital, till now. Generally considered a non-fatal disease, chikungunya is caused by a virus. The season for vector-borne diseases in Delhi starts from mid-July and generally lasts till November-end. According to the report prepared by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), a total of 24 cases of dengue have been reported this season till now.

Ahead of MCD poll results, Jamia Nagar hopes for a dengue-free season 26.4.2017 DNA: Popular News
Ahead of the municipal election results, the residents of south-east Delhi's Jamia Nagar are hoping for a dengue-free season this year. The locality had witnessed several dengue and chikungunya cases last year, with as many as 10 people dying as a result. "We do not know who will win the election on Wednesday but we hope they do something concrete to clear the filth spread in the locality," resident Sameer Choudhary said. Echoing his sentiment, Rahiba Begum, another resident, said: "The municipal body has done nothing to clean the filth in our area, which led to widespread mosquito breeding last year. This year again, the mosquito menace is looming large over us," she said, adding that the problem will not be solved unless the overflowing landfills in the area are taken care of. "One can even see carcasses of stray dogs in these landfills," Danista Begum said. She lost her 13-year-old niece to chikungunya last year. Another landfill is located close to a MCD school in the area. "How do we save our ...

Fighting malaria: Health dept stings BBMP to be on its toes 26.4.2017
Bengaluru: The health department has issued strict orders to the BBMP to conduct malaria surveillance within their limits, but the Palike has so far maintained that the incidence of malaria is almost negligible in the city. But without proper surveillance, there is very little data to back this claim. “Bengaluru is not malaria-endemic and the city has been categorised as low-risk. We come across only sporadic cases, and only dengue and chikungunya cases are reported within the BBMP limits,” said Dr Lokesh, Chief Health Officer, Public Health, BBMP. But as the numbers are not available, it jeopardises the government’s plan to eliminate malaria across the state by 2025. Dr Mohammed Shariff, Research Officer, National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP), State Directorate, said, “There is a lack of surveillance mechanism within the BBMP limits. Blood smears are not being drawn and sent to labs for testing. Private hospitals are, however, sending the data to the health department." On the city ...
