CTP creates awareness about dengue virus

RAWALPINDI: The City Traffic Police (CTP) is creating awareness about the dengue virus and larvae breeding as it is briefing the masses on daily basis at schools, colleges, public places, and bus stands, said City Traffic Officer (CTO) Shoaib Khurram Janbaz. The CTO informed that the Education Wing of the CTP had delivered lectures about the disease to create awareness among the transporters and passengers. The CTP had been educating the citizens about precautionary measures in order to avoid dengue virus, the CTO added. Prevention is better than cure, he said, adding that following precautionary measures and conducting anti-dengue sprays could control the fatal dengue virus. People should fully cover their bodies, especially at dawn and dusk and do not let water accumulate anywhere so the larva could not breed around their houses, he advised. Khurram said that the traffic wardens had also been advised to cover their bodies while performing duties, in order to remain invulnerable from the dengue mosquitoes and avoid going where there are mosquitoes.
