Fogging drive picks up on the second day; number of machines increased to cover more areas
On the second day of the special fogging drive on Friday to eliminate mosquitoes which spread vector borne diseases like Chikungunya and Dengue, the PWD deployed professional agencies which used around 200 small machines and 25 big machines for carrying out the work in different parts of Delhi.
Special Fogging work in the areas maintained by the Municipal Corporations of Delhi had begun on Thursday. The drive is being supervised by PWD engineers on the ground quite vigorously and in right earnest to give relief to the public of Delhi from the spread of these vector borne diseases. The fogging will be done in every street and locality on alternate days.
The drive has been planned in a way that at least seven to eight fogging machines will be operational in every constituency at a given time in next few days.
The Delhi government initiative is being appreciated by the residents of Delhi according to the feedback being received regularly.
The government has made it clear that the special fogging drive is to supplement the efforts of the civic agencies, since given the feedback there is a great demand from the public to fumigate their respective residential areas.
The government is hopeful of positive contribution from all the civic agencies in ensuring relief to the public. Prevention from vector borne diseases is a priority at the current juncture.
