As many as 80 percent dengue larva has been reported from room-coolers therefore, people should drain water from room-coolers and keep it dry to check dengue mosquitoes breeding, said Punjab Chief Minister Health Advisor Khawaja Salman Rafique while presiding over a meeting of Cabinet Committee on Dengue at the Civil Secretariat on Wednesday.

Health Director General Dr Zahid Pervez, DCO Captain (r) Muhammad Usman, senior officers of the departments concerned, town officers and dengue experts attended the meeting.

Rafique said that due to the stagnant flood water in Muridke and Ferozwala, the trend of dengue larva and dengue patients reporting have been increased from these areas. He directed the officers concerned and administration to intensify their anti-dengue activities and keep a vigilant eye on the situation.
