Chennai Corporation launches dengue awareness campaign

Chennai: With the onset of dengue season, the Greater Chennai Corporation Zone V, Kalyanapuram Housing Board has launched an awareness campaign to prevent the mosquito-borne disease.

Officials said that cleanliness and awareness about the diseases are very important to stay healthy.

The public were briefed on source reduction, clearing coconut shells, plastic bags, and other unwanted materials, which would stagnate rain water. They were also briefed on how these unused materials can become a breeding home for these mosquitoes.

People with fever, chills, knee, muscle, shoulder pain and headache are advised to visit the doctor.
