Mosquitoes breeding ground multiplies with intermittent rain. And when that happens, people will be at risk of getting dengue fever. This is exactly the case in Coimbatore. The Department of Public Health in Coimbatore has already issued a red flag after the recent heavy rain that took place in the district. But they said there is still no need to worry too much. The red alert was done only to raise awareness and ask people in the are to be extra careful and take precautions. ”The red alert is only a warning to be careful. There is nothing to fear as active dengue control and prevention methods in Coimbatore has yielded successful results with zero percent mortality in dengue cases,” this was the statement of Dr.R Dhamodaran from the department of health. There has already been a total of 406 reported cases of dengue last year but no deaths. Whenever a case was reported, a team with medical personnel visits the area and carries out fogging. They take this matter quite seriously and make sure to do all they can to prevent it from happening.
