As the northeast monsoon is expected to set in from the third week of October, Erode Corporation has stepped up its dengue control operations by commissioning 400 domestic livestock controllers (DBCs).

The goal is to prevent the breeding of larvae in households and commercial establishments.

A health official said 300 temporary full-time workers and 100 part-time workers were involved in door-to-door dengue operations to cover all 60 departments in four areas of the Company. They participated in the disposal of obsolete items and taking measures to prevent larvae from breeding in stagnant water in households.

“Their main role is to check dengue breeding areas and destroy it,” the official said. In addition, the misting was carried out by the workers and the residents were made aware of the cleanliness of their premises.

While temporary workers were involved in various activities in the morning and evening, part-time workers were involved in activities from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. every day. “Fever clusters, hotspots and areas where fever cases have been reported recently are prioritized,” the official said. The official asked residents to keep their air tanks clean and properly closed and asked people to go to the nearest urban primary health center or government hospital if they suffer from fever.
