Finally, the Corporation officials have started fogging after long wait in Dwarka. They are doing it inside and outside of the societies on the demand of RWAs. The RWAs are calling the concerned Malaria Inspector of the area and asking for the fogging in the society’s premises.

Also, the team of the SDMC officials is checking for the breeding of mosquitoes inside the societies. They are giving notices and doing challan against any findings of breeding.

Malaria Inspector of Ward Dwarka B, Rohtas Singh said that the second round of fogging will be done next month. “We are doing fogging on routine basis or on demands of RWAs. We are doing it on priority,” said Rohtas.

He further informed, “Fogging can kill all the mosquitoes but it is not effective on larva so we spray also. I can say that there are findings of breeding in the area.”

Malaria Inspector of Dwarka A and Dwarka B informed that breeding were found at many places inside the societies during checking. “We are giving notices to RWAs whenever we find breeding. Yesterday, the RWA of Sri Vinayak Apartments in Sector-10 was given a notice against findings of breeding inside premises.”

Similarly, the Malaria Inspector of Dwarka A, Dara Singh informed that on an average, 10 to 12 notices or challans are being made against the breeding in the area on daily basis.

According to sources, three suspected cases in Dwarka B and two in Dwarka A have been reported related to vector-borne diseases.

President of RWA of Sri Vinayak Apartments in Sector-10, Rakesh Kalsi said, “Finally, the fogging was started only after demands and requests. The Municipal Corporation should do it on routine basis. In our society, two cases of Dengue have been reported.”

RWAs and management of the societies are sending their fogging request on the WhatsApp groups of the particular wards.
