Our Correspondent

Jhajjar, October 16
Although 68 cases of malaria have been tested positive and are being given fever radical treatment (FRT) for the disease since October 1 in the district, none of the patients are in a serious condition and all of them are recovering fast. The doctors of the Health Department claimed the situation was well under control here and intensive fogging operations were being undertaken in the vulnerable areas, including Bahadurgarh, Rohad and Jamalpur villages.

The health officials said no red alert had been sounded in the district as there was no serious danger of the spread of the disease. Various teams of doctors had been deployed in different areas to take stock of the situation. Mr S. K. Sharma, SMO, Dighal, and in charge of the anti-malaria operation of the district, said an alert had been sounded only in Kaithal, Karnal, Gurgaon and Faridabad districts.

He said 315 suspected cases of malaria were detected till September. As a result of favourable environmental conditions for breeding of mosquitoes in the months of September-October, the cases of malaria increased swiftly. He said 93 cases of malaria were found in September while the number was at 49 in the corresponding month last year. He said water was still standing in the low-lying areas of the district due to heavy monsoon rains.

He said a public awareness campaign had been initiated and an announcement was being made in Bahadurgarh about the prevention and symptoms of the disease. People had been asked to spray anti-larvae medicines in the standing water and other mosquito breeding grounds in their vicinity.
