AMC Prepares For Likely Onslaught Of Vector-borne Diseases

| Updated: August 8, 2022 12:42

Heavy rains in July have led to a significant increase in the mosquito population, which has become a real cause of concern. The city is currently facing a large number of cases of seasonal flu and an increasing number of viral infections. Besides coronavirus, swine flu cases are also on the rise. Now, it is possible that the city will have to face an onslaught of vector-borne diseases like malaria, dengue and chikungunya.

Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation’s (AMC) recent data shows that while in June the average number of mosquitos in a room was 0.10, it has risen to four in July. In some areas like Paldi and Isanpur, the population density of mosquitos is much higher than in areas like Stadium and Vejalpur. According to sources, since western areas have more open spaces, gardens, terraces, basements, parks and so on, mosquitos have more places to breed. Waterlogging in such places is the main reason for the increase in vector population.

However, this is not the worst, as AMC believes the vector population will continue increasing in August and September as well. The civic body is preparing to deploy drones to identify breeding spots and carry out fumigation of such spaces across the city.
