BHOPAl: Amid the increasing number of COVID-19 patients, the threat of dengue and malaria has started looming large in Bhopal. This is the reason that check-up campaigns are being run in various areas in the state capital.
It has been reported that in various areas of the city, extra-sensitive areas, slum areas and other settlements, there is a possibility of increasing dengue larvae, malaria, and spread of coronavirus. Hence, the campaign is being run at a broader level under which rapid tests and blood slide collection are being done.
District Malaria Officer Akhilesh Dubey said that a campaign is being run for the prevention of malaria by appointing teams in different areas. Nearly 799 people have been tested so far for malaria in Bhopal through rapid tests. (IANS)
