Continuing their drive against vector-borne diseases like dengue, malaria and chikangunya, officials of the Health Department today carried out raids in several areas in the city to destroy mosquito larvae.

Officials of the department today examined the Shaheed Babu Labh Singh Nagar, where they checked the air coolers in several houses and also informed the residents about the water-borne diseases and on destroying the larvae.

Dr Preetkamal, in-charge, IDSP, said it is the people who have to cooperate to tackle these diseases. People must keep vigil on their surroundings and water should not be allowed to accumulate. Wherever water accumulates, the place should be left to dry up at least once a week.

Dr Preetkamal said if a family is going out for few days, they should empty their buckets and coolers to prevent the breeding of larvae.
