Jalandhar, October 5- In its ongoing drive against vector-borne diseases in the city under Tandarust Punjab Mission, a joint team of the health department and Municipal Corporation Jalandhar (MCJ) detected 30 dengue larva cases in various localities of the city.
Teams of anti-larva wing led by Mr Kamaldeep, Mr Rajan Kumar, Mr Raj Kumar, Mr Sanjeev Kumar, Mr Gurwinder Singh, Mr Sarbjeet and others carried the inspection in Jattpura Mohalla, Shakti Nagar, Raja Garden, New Santokhpura, Shaheed and Baba Deep Singh Nagar.

The larva mostly was found in desert coolers, flower pots, buckets and other water containers.
The teams’ members interacted with the local residents and asked them to refrain from storing water in containers and air coolers as it could act as a breeding ground for the mosquitoes that were the carriers of diseases like dengue, malaria and others.
They also informed the people about the ‘Tandarust Punjab Mission’ that was aimed at ensuring the overall wellness of the people of the district.
