The health officer provided information regarding the dengue larvae found, stating that while 1,361 sites were found during outdoor surveillance, 6,735 residences were determined to have larvae during indoor surveillance.
As the primary source of larvae breeding, he added that the necessary action had already been completed and asked the inhabitants to maintain their water tanks clean and to avoid leaving any area damp or with standing water.

According to Dr. Sajjad, the government is working tirelessly to stop the spread of dengue larvae, but no campaign could be successful without the public’s active involvement.
