Civil Surgeon Dr SP Singh has issued an advisory asking residents to protect themselves against vector-borne diseases like dengue fever and malaria

The Civil Surgeon said the mosquito breeding season has already started. Dr Singh said dengue is caused by the bite of a female mosquito, Aedes aegypti, which breeds in standing water in trays behind coolers, pans, tires and refrigerators.

“We must not allow water to stagnate in and around our homes. Standing water should be cleared on a weekday as directed by the health department. One should wear clothes that cover the trusses and legs to avoid mosquito bites, sleep with mosquito nets at bedtime at night and also use mosquito repellents,” Singh said.
