Taking note of the rising number of dengue cases in the past few days, the Haryana health ministry has pulled up the district administration for lack of preventive measures.
The ministry has sought a detailed report in a week time from the district health department about measures to check the spread of the mosquito-borne disease.
"I have sought details of fogging and anti-larva spray to prevent the infection during the past two months. I have also sought detail of people engaged in curbing mosquito breeding and volunteers involved in spreading awareness by visiting door-to-door," said health minister Rao Narender Singh.
Singh called up Gurgaon civil surgeon Dr Praveen Garg on Monday. The ministry will hold a meeting this week with the health department officials.
"We have been sending details to the ministry since viral took serious turn and we have been taking all steps to ensure dengue count does not increase," said Dr Garg.
Apart from 226 infected people, about 1,100 suspected cases have been found across the city in the past two months.
