Cases of Malaria on the rise in city

urlNagpur: As the weather is undergoing a change and the transition from Monsoon spiced with very warm temperature to winter, gradually, many cases of various ailments have hit the kids and elderly citizens in Nagpur.

In a recent survey in the city, it was found that the cases of Malaria have shown a considerable increase.  While the local civic body Nagpur Municipal Corporation is conducting “Cleanliness campaign” many areas still are seen with filth, garbage, over-flowing gutters, clogged up sewage, rain-water clogging etc, which provides the right and favourable conditions for mosquitoes to live and multiply.

Though, the civic administration has been advising the local populace to maintain cleanliness, avoid storing water, and other precautionary measures which can provide favourable conditions for the habitat of mosquitoes, one can find all these conditions prevailing in many areas. On many occasions, the civic authorities were found lacking in providing services like garbage removal, sewage cleaning etc.

The areas affected by the growing menace of mosquitoes are in North Nagpur Yadav nagar, Sangharsh nagar, Patel nagar, Vandevi nagar. East Nagpur, Rajendra nagar jhopadpatti, Deputy signal, Bhandewadi. South Nagpur including Futala, Gorewada, Seminary Hills, Surendragadh, etc.

According to information among the malaria patients of all age, the children are most affected by the infection.
