AWARENESS ON PREVENTION ON VECTOR BORNE DISEASES (DENGUE, CHIKUNGUNYA AND MALARIA)
The Rainy Season, usually, contributes to the vector borne diseases. These are all mosquito generated diseases and sometimes take the shape of epidemic, if preventive measures are not taken. Prevention is the best method to control any disease. In order to control and prevent the outbreak of Dengue, Chikungunya & Malaria, it is essential to prevent breeding of mosquitoes.
To check breeding of mosquitoes in the houses, we all must take the following measures for nipping the mosquitoes in the bud. The following do’s and don’ts must be followed to prevent the spread of such diseases:
.Cover all water tanks and containers with well fitted lids.
.Empty, scrub and dry coolers every week before refilling.
.Unused containers, junk materials, tyres, coconut shells etc. should be disposed of properly.
.Change water in flower vases, plant pots, bird baths every week.
.Wear full sleeved clothes and use mosquito repellents to avoid mosquito bites.
.Do not keep water containers open.
.Don’t use the old grass of the cooler in the next season and dispose of the same.
.Don’t throw broken utensils, unused bottles, tins, old tyres and other junk in the open.
.Don’t allow water to stagnate in and around houses in coolers, buckets, barrels, flower pots, coconut shells, etc.
