Rise in dengue cases puts BBMP on alert; officials warn against self-medication

Over 5,800 cases of dengue have been reported in Bengaluru. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike’s health department identified 71 wards that are vulnerable and has initiated the process of fogging and spraying chemicals to destroy mosquito larvae. Doctors also have advised residents to stop self-medicating if one exhibits symptoms of fever, body aches, joint pain and vomiting. Ignoring these signs could prove fatal.

To ensure the prevention, BBMP has deputed special officers to conduct house surveys to inform residents of measures such as better water storage practices, usage of meshes and nets at doors, windows, appropriate clothing (that covers the whole body to prevent mosquito bites) and emptying debris and flower pots that holds water.
