LGH will start awareness drive on Dengue


Post Graduate Medical Institute and Amiruddin Medical College Principal Prof Al-freed Zafar said that public service messages will be sent to civil society, media and social organizations for awareness on dengue prevention under PGMI’s Health Education Programme so that people take precautionary measures and stay safe from dengue fever.
He told that according to the policy of the Punjab government, all the medical and diagnostic facilities will be available free of cost to the people suffering from dengue fever in LGH and maximum cooperation will be extended to them.
Medical Superintendent Dr Mahmood Salahuddin, Director Emergency Dr. Rana Muhammad Shafiq, Director Outdoor Dr. Abdul Razzaq, AMS Dr. Jaffar Hussain Shah and other administrative doctors were also present on the occasion.
The PGMI Principal added that in view of increasing the possibility of breeding of dengue mosquitoes with the onset of monsoon season, special counters for dengue patients have been set up in the emergency and outdoor areas of LGH.
These counters will remain open from 8 am to 8 pm and will guide the patients suffering from dengue fever and provide them medical treatment services as well.
Prof. Al-freed Zafar said that along with the epidemic of coronavirus, we also have to fight against dengue and take all possible steps to control it. He said that like other diseases, dengue is also a public concern and we have to manage it collectively for which cooperation of everyone is essential. He added that citizens should not allow water to accumulate in their homes and to make it impossible for dengue to spread, they should destroy the useless items lying on the roofs, plastic and old tires as well as pay full attention to cleanliness to ensure eradication of dengue hotspots.
