SECOND PHASE OF CITY-WIDE FUMIGATION

City District Government Karachi has started second phase of town-wise fumigation campaign after completion of first phase of extensive spray program. About 20 vehicles will be used for second phase to perform spray in two towns daily. City Government has also arranged a special spray program for flood relief camps. A total of 267 patients infected with dengue virus have received successful treatment in Abbasi Shaheed Hospital.

This was stated by Administrator Karachi Fazlur Rehman while talking to media representatives after inaugurating second phase of city wide fumigation campaign in Saddar Town Office on Friday.

He said that the special 40 bedded ward established in Abbasi Shaheed Hospital was providing best and free of cost medical treatment to patients suffered from dengue fever. More beds will be added in this ward if needed.

Administrator said that he has called a joint meeting of town administrators and city government to adopt a combined strategy to control the spread of dengue and other harmful viruses and to bring improvement in the overall sanitation condition in city.

He said that the on going fumigation will be made even more effective by adopting such a strategy that could effectively cover all areas or union councils in Karachi. In order to make it more effective, elected representatives on town level will be asked to support the fumigation campaign in their respective areas.

Administrator said that the shortage of resources will not create any obstacle in the continuous provision of better health care facilities to citizens.

He also appealed to citizens to register their complaints on 1339 regarding spray campaign in their area so that instant action could be taken. EDO Health Dr. Nasir Javed and Saddar Town Administrator Mukhtar Hussain were also present on this occasion.
