Jalandhar- In its drive to sensitize the people to prevent stagnation of water, clean the water storage tanks, coolers and waste containers daily under 'Mission Fateh' program, the health department on Thursday conducted the drive against vector-borne diseases in various parts of the city.

The members of the anti-larva cell including Sukhjinder Singh, Rajwinder Singh, Sarwan Singh, Sher Singh, Shakti Gopal, Rajan Kumar,  Pyara Lal and others carried out inspection in Shanti Enclave, New Deol Nagar, Shaheed Bhagat Singh Colony and nearby areas.

Four cases were detected in Shanti Enclave, two in New Deol Nagar and three in Shaheed Bhagat Singh Colony.

During the checking, the teams visited 140 houses and checked 49 air coolers and 158 waste containers.

Epidemiologist Dr Satish Kumar told that the teams sensitized the people that these places could act as a breeding ground for the mosquitoes to spread diseases like dengue, malaria and others so these must be cleaned regularly.
