Aerosol sprays to be distributed to schools in Bangladesh to combat dengue fever
According to the Dhaka Tribune, the number of patients hospitalised due to dengue fever in just the last seven months is close to surpassing the previous number of cases over 20 years combined. In 2019 so far, a total of 9,657 patients were reported to have been hospitalised, according to the Directorate General of Health Services. Hospitals are full to the brim and the country is fighting to control the outbreak.
“We will provide aerosol sprays to all educational institutions in my city area free of cost to fight the menace of mosquitos,” said Dhaka South City Corporation Mayor Sayeed Khokon. “I hope that we would be able to get rid of the situation immediately.”
