Stepping up the 'Har Shukarwar, Dengue te Vaar' campaign, the District Health Department today conducted surprise checks in various private hospitals, clinics and labs across the district. Civil surgeon Dr. Mahesh Kumar Aahuja along with a team of senior health officials visited Max Hospital and supervised the inspection of containers, pots, coolers, refrigerators, boxes and other items. 

During the drive, mosquito larvae were found at three sites in the hospital premises. The hospital authorities were directed not to allow water to accumulate anywhere. 

The hospital staff was explained in detail about the symptoms, causes, prevention and treatment of dengue fever. Dr. Mahesh Kumar said that on the instructions of the Punjab government, the health department conducted the drive this morning simultaneously from 9 to 10 am in the district. 

He said that wherever larvae were found in hospitals, labs etc., a warning was given and a penalty would be imposed if larvae were found again. He appealed to the district residents to cooperate for the prevention of dengue and said that the health department on its own is making continuous efforts in this direction but only with the help of the people the district could be made dengue free. 

People should wear clothes that cover the whole body. If there is a suspected dengue victim, they should immediately visit the nearest hospital. Dengue testing and treatment is available free of cost in government hospitals across the district. 

For health related information, the health department helpline no. 104 may be contacted any time. District Epidemiologist Dr. Subhash Kumar, SMO Dr. H S Cheema, Dr. Vijay Bhagat and other officers were part of the team.
