Despite 10 dengue cases being confirmed in city this summer, residents have failed to take precautions. On Tuesday, the health department carried out checks in various areas of the city and found larvae of Aedes aegypti mosquito, the vector that transmits the dengue virus, in three houses in Police Colony Jamalpur, MIG flats and Sector 32, Chandigarh Road.


Information regarding the violators has been passed to the municipal corporation to issue challans.
July is being observed as dengue awareness month by the health department as breeding of the Aedes egypti mosquito increases in monsoon.

District epidemiologist Dr Anil Verma, who supervised the drive, said, “Checking of coolers and containers was conducted in houses as this mosquito breeds in clean water. The team destroyed the larvae found in houses on the spot.”
