A function to create awareness about the dengue fever and promotion of healthy environment was organised by the Nav Chetna Bal Bhalai Committee at Channan Devi Memorial Government High School, Salem Tabri.


Dr Arun Mitra, ENT surgeon and general secretary of the Bharat Jan Gyan Vigyan Jatha (BJGVJ) told the students about means to prevent themselves from dengue fever.

He asked them to wear full sleeve shirts and socks so as to prevent themselves from mosquito bite. He also asked them to identify any source of mosquito breeding in their house or locality, use mosquito repellents and mosquito nets.
The event was organised under the instructions of deputy commissioner and guidance of the civil surgeon Ludhiana under the leadership of Sukhbir Singh Sekhon, president of Nav Chetna Bal Bhalai Committee.
Sekhon said “The crackers emit hazardous smoke which is detrimental to our health. Moreover, there is dense smoke around due to burning of paddy straw. Cracker's smoke will add to the smoke density. Those suffering from chest diseases especially asthma are at a grave risk,” he added.
