Activists take up fogging to fight dengue

Share This

Abohar, November 1

The Health Department has declared Street 7 as a micro-containment zone after a sudden spike in the number of Covid cases was witnessed in New Suraj Nagari here.

Residents of the posh colony include former legislator Dr Mohinder Rinwa, ex-president of state BJP BL Rinwa, BJP Mahila Morcha state president Mona Jaiswal, three former councillors and teachers.

Residents are also worried over the rise in dengue cases. The fourth person to have died of dengue is Ashish Nagpal (26), who used to run a fruit juice shop on

Railway Road. Ashu is survived by his wife and a two-year-old child.

At present, more than 100 dengue patients are undergoing treatment.

Since fogging has not been launched in a big way by the authorities concerned, two social activists Rakesh Kalani and Amit Mittal arranged hi-tech equipment and started fogging from Hanuman Mandir today. The facility would be made available to other localities also to combat the spread of dengue, they said. — OC
