Dengue may be taking its toll on citizens but the health department refuses to stand down. They have intensified their awareness campaign on dengue fever and mosquito control measures. Recently the health department organised a rally in the town of Erode Chennai. Participants were from paramedical colleges and its employees. Collector V.K. Shanmugam flagged off the rally. A campaign vehicle was also inaugurated. Not allowing the rest of the city to be left out the department plans to organize similar campaigns throughout. Handbills explaining the symptoms of dengue fever prevention measures and mosquito control measures will be distributed in the near future.
