“We (City Corporation) have shared our works with all stakeholders to continue the combined efforts to rein in dengue outbreak,” he told journalists after visiting mosquito control program at Sher-E-Bangla Government Boys’ High School and College, an official release said.
The DSCC mayor said, “Relevant organizations are not doing enough to combat the dengue menace, although designated workers of the city corporation are working with the utmost sincerity to destroy breeding sources of Aedes mosquito.”
The city corporations held a meeting with all relevant organizations in May this year on ways and doings to control the menace, he said.
“We have shared a set of directives among the relevant ministries, organizations and agencies . . . but they are not following the directives to fight the deadly disease,” Taposh added.
He urged all stakeholders including, city dwellers to supplement the efforts taken by city corporations to destroy all potential sources of Aedes mosquito to prevent the dengue.
As many as 79 dengue patients were hospitalized in the last 24 hours till this morning, according to the statement of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) issued yesterday.
This year, the total number of cases rose to 4,208, while 47 deaths from dengue disease were reported during the same period.
Last year, the country recorded 1,705 dengue-related deaths and a total of 3,21,179 dengue cases.
