Subject: Measures to take to prevent the spread of Dengue


Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I wish to voice my opinion about, the population of mosquitoes being tremendously increased, which brings along with it, the spread of dengue. 

As the monsoon has arrived in India and mosquitoes are breeding at every corner of the city, people have to take precaution. The other day patient with a suspected case of dengue was admitted to the hospital. It’s high time we took steps to prevent our children from contracting the disease. So it’s time we cleaned the surroundings, reduced the concentration of water elements in stagnant forms and take care to keep the surroundings clean. Fogging or spraying of larvicide must be taken up by the municipality as mosquito control measures.

I am writing in order to request that the concerned authorities, increase awareness about the dangers of dengue fever and urge all the citizens to take necessary precautions in order to protect their families from this serious illness.

Yours Sincerely

Subject: Awareness Drive against the spread of dengue.

With the dengue fever engulfing a number of states, many people are worried about it. Please allow me to focus through the columns of your esteemed daily on how we can reduce the chances of spreading dengue in our city.

With the onset of the monsoon season, mosquito activity is increasing. The Aedes aegypti mosquito responsible for transmitting Dengue and Chikungunya breeds in stagnant water. It gets agitated by any physical disturbance of its breeding grounds or water container. So it is essential to constantly remove debris and upturn containers so that they are not able to breed and multiply. We should try wearing full sleeve clothes Mosquito repellents containing DEET or picaridin should be used before going outside, If you have a fever, rash, joint pain headache or any other symptoms, contact the doctor immediately. Although dengue fever is not usually fatal, there may be complications that can cause death in extreme cases.

I would like to request the government to held awareness campaigns against dengue in local clubs and school at a regular interval. We need to help educate our neighbours and friends about the dangers of Dengue in order to protect ourselves and those we care about

Yours Sincerely
Ananya Deshmukh
