Anti-dengue campaign : Half-sleeve shirts, shorts banned in schools, colleges

19 dengue cases confirmed; 1,127 suspected cases reported

* CM orders foolproof arrangements for Anti-Dengue Day on Sept 2

Staff Report

LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shahbaz Sharif has imposed a ban on wearing of half-sleeve shirts and shorts in educational institutions as a precautionary measure against dengue.

At least 19 dengue cases have been confirmed in Punjab, while 1,127 suspected cases have been reported. According to a report by the Punjab Health Department, out of the 1,127 cases, 81 have a high probability of being confirmed as positive.

Addressing a meeting of provincial anti-dengue committee on Thursday, the CM said that Anti-Dengue Day would be enthusiastically observed throughout Punjab on September 2. He said that all government offices, departments and institutions would remain open that day. He warned that any laxity or negligence in the ongoing campaign against dengue would not be tolerated and stern action would be taken against those found guilty.

The CM constituted a six-member steering committee comprising MPAs to ensure observance of Anti-Dengue Day and said that the said committee would monitor all arrangements for the day.

He directed that seminars, walks and workshops should be held on the day while students should especially be motivated to participate in this national cause. He also directed that committees, consisting of parents, should be constituted to monitor dengue arrangements at schools and colleges while elected representatives and government officers must also step into the field along with the public.

Shahbaz said that coordinated and collective efforts were necessary for dengue’s elimination, and directed all government and private institutions to involve their respective focal persons in the anti-dengue campaign. Private schools and hospitals should also be asked to maintain cleanliness and make foolproof anti-dengue arrangements, he added.

The CM further directed that additional instruments should be installed for shredding of old tyres in a proper manner, while arrangements should also be made for cleaning scrap houses. He gave direction for immediate fogging and fumigation at places that were likely to serve as breeding grounds for dengue mosquito.

Taking strict notice of non-removal of construction debris, the CM reprimanded the authorities concerned and ordered immediate lifting of the debris.

He said that all departments should play an active role in combating dengue and their performance should be reflected at the union council level.

Taking strict notice of the “fake action” at some points by dengue helpline staff, Shahbaz directed that the performance shown by the helpline during the previous year ought to be maintained. He further ordered recruitment of entomologists for dengue eradication and said that special attention should be paid to the training of volunteers. He also ordered special monitoring of water disposal and sanitation arrangements in cooperative housing societies.

The CM also directed to ensure implementation of anti-dengue measures in railway colony and institutions run by the federal government.

Giving a briefing to the CM, the health secretary said that anti-dengue arrangements had been finalised and, as compared to the previous years, the situation this year was under control. Medical expert Dr Faisal Masood said that dengue virus had not spread because of timely steps taken by the Punjab government, whereas all anti-dengue arrangements had already been completed in hospitals.(Daily Times)
