The Delhi government will campaign from September 1 to eradicate dengue and chikungunya. The aim is to reduce the dengue case further this year. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the theme of this campaign is for – 10 weeks, at 10 o’clock. From September 1 to 10 weeks, every Sunday at 10 o’clock, check your house to see if the mosquitoes of dengue are growing.
Kejriwal said to check the house every Sunday, I will also check my house every Sunday. You must also. The Chief Minister said that in just four years, Dengue and Chikungunya in Delhi has reduced by 80 percent. In 2015, there were 15867 cases of dengue and 60 people died. Whereas in 2018 there were 2798 cases and 4 deaths.
Speaking on the outbreak of dengue and chikungunya every year during the monsoon, the Chief Minister said that the outbreak of dengue and chikungunya occurs every year during monsoon and after monsoon. In this case, the period from September to November is considered more dangerous. Talking about yourself, India is among the 100 countries in which the outbreak of dengue and chikungunya is very high.
Outbreak of dengue in the country
He said that if we look at the statistics of the whole country, between 2009 and 2017, outbreak of dengue and chikungunya has increased in the country by 300 percent. There were 60 thousand cases in the whole country in 2009, which increased to 1 lakh 88 thousand 401 in 2017. Dengue and chikungunya were the highest deaths in 2017 in the entire country. But, this trend is going upside down in Delhi. Dengue and chikungunya have been controlled to a large extent due to the efforts of the government and public participation in Delhi.
Number of deaths this year,
He said that not a single death has taken place this year. Only 75 cases have been reported. About 500 fever clinics were established every season. Nodal officers were appointed inside every hospital to deal with dengue and chikungunya. Beds were provided in every hospital, especially for dengue patients. Private hospitals were allowed to increase beds by 20 percent every year for dengue and chikungunya this season.
CM Kejriwal will check the house every Sunday,
Kejriwal said that in this campaign I will also check in my house at ten o’clock every Sunday. My ministers will also investigate. All our MLAs will also investigate. All officers will also investigate. All Delhi will investigate. We will include citizens, government officials, school children. I sincerely hope that the people of Delhi will make this campaign a success.
Some information about dengue
Dengue mosquito-born only in clean water. If clean water collects for a few days and is not replaced, then dengue eggs are produced inside that clean water and those eggs become mosquito within 8 to 10 days. If we change that water before 8 days and destroy that egg then the mosquito will not be born. We should keep watching at home whether there is any water gathering in the pot, in the cooler, in any small place. If gathering, remove it or replace it or put some oil in the cooler, etc. so that the eggs that are there will not become mosquitoes.
