Lahore—Advisor to Chief Minister Punjab on Health Khawaja Salman Rafiq has directed the DCO Lahore and other concerned authorities to take immediate effective measures to eradicate dengue larvae from the area of Defense Housing Authority.
He said that collective efforts should be made to check the dengue breeding in DHA as well as in cantonment areas. He observed that large scale reporting of dengue larvae from DHA is a serious matter which can increase the breeding of dengue mosquitoes.

He stated this while addressing Cabinet Committee meeting on Dengue at Civil Secretariat, Committee Room on Friday.
