Pre-emptive measures

Vulnerable are the numerous guards, of contracting dengue, that have been deployed at every street.


Letter September 05, 2011

LAHORE: I live in DHA, supposedly the most posh locality in Lahore, where all residents pay monthly charges to the administration. Is it then not their responsibility to do something about the dengue epidemic that has gripped the locality? Particularly vulnerable are the numerous guards that have been deployed at every street, who sit out in the open, day and all night. Providing them with mosquito repellant spray should be the first step.
