Early Times Report
Jammu, Oct 18: With dozens of people testing positive for dengue virus in the last week, the number of patients affected with the vector-borne disease in Jammu region has reached 88, raising the total number of infected to more than 300 since July this year.
Suresh Mahajan, a resident of the old city, said panic is growing among the jammuites as the dengue cases are rising. He said a proper sanitation is needed to restrict the breeding of the larvae which is responsible for this epidemic, and it is possible only after the municipality authorities will take action.
An official of the Directorate of Health Services Jammu said that few fresh cases of dengue were reported in last two weeks. "But there is nothing to panic," he insisted, "as none among the infected patients was found to be critical."
He said till date around 300 people were suspected, and most of the infected persons had been successfully treated and are healthy now. He said preventive measures are being taken up by his department and they are treating not only the suspected areas but also the adjoining ones with disinfectants.
He added that people must keep the surroundings clean.
