Delhi Govt doctors hail CM’s anti-dengue drive

Sunday, 13 September 2020 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

Doctors of Delhi government hospitals have hailed the efforts of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the second week of the 10 Hafte 10 Baje 10 Minute Anti-Dengue campaign.

The ten weeks long anti-dengue mass awareness campaign on preventing dengue urges people to inspect their houses for signs of stagnant clean water inside their homes or their surroundings, which can lead to the breeding of mosquitoes that spread dengue.

The doctors, who continue to remain the backbone in this fight against Dengue, have come out in support of the anti-dengue campaign and are assuring the citizens that Delhi will cope up with Dengue together.

The Delhi government has been providing free of cost treatment and testing for Dengue in all Delhi government hospitals and has also launched a telephonic and WhatsApp helpline to assist the general public for Dengue.

Kejriwal launched the campaign on September 6 by inspecting his residence for stagnant water to prevent the breeding of mosquitoes.

Taking to social media,  had tweeted, "The people of Delhi had once again started a war against dengue. On the first Sunday of this 10-week massive campaign, I have also changed the clean water accumulated in my house and eliminated the possibility of mosquito-borne diseases. For the next 10 weeks, every Sunday at 10 AM, we need to check our homes for just 10 minutes. Along with saving our families from Dengue, we have to save Delhi from Dengue. I am sure the people of Delhi will defeat dengue this time as well."
