RAWALPINDI, Sept 10: Punjab Environment Secretary Saeed Wahla on Monday stopped district health department from conducting unnecessary fogging in the residential areas to avoid dengue threat and linked fogging where it would be necessary with DCO’s approval.

“There is no need to conduct unnecessary fogging in residential areas as the anti-dengue medicines containing chemicals are harmful for the environment, so be careful in future and conduct fogging where it will be necessary with the approval of DCO,” he said while addressing a meeting held at commissioner office.

“The next two to three weeks are crucial as after the rainy season there were chances of breeding of dengue mosquitoes and the district administration and health department should ensure to drain out stagnant water,” he said.

Commissioner Imdadullah Bosal said the DCOs of all the four districts of Rawalpindi division would monitor the anti-dengue campaign and assistant commissioners would monitor the campaign in their respective tehsils.
