An awareness walk and seminar on dengue fever was arranged at the health department office in Attock on Saturday.
Participants carried placards and banners and distributed pamphlets to inform people about ways to prevent dengue fever.
They were told to drain areas where water has been stored as these areas serve as breeding grounds for mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus.
They were also told to consult their relevant tehsil headquarter and district headquarter hospitals in case they show symptoms of dengue.
The seminar and walk was attended by Standing Committee for Defence Chairman Aftab Ahmed and acting District Coordination Officer Attock Abid Wazir.
