Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayeed Khokon has said dengue situation in Bangladesh is getting critical day by day.

“Being the mayor, I am also an inhabitant of this city, and I am worried too as I have a family like all other citizens,” he said after inspecting treatment facilities at Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College and Hospital on Sunday.

Khokon said: “Mosquito does not differentiate between a mayor or minister. It bites everyone.”

 He said: “The number of patients suffering from dengue fever is increasing day by day. As of now, over 10,000 dengue patients have been identified.

“Every agency of the government is doing their best to control the situation.”

“Do not lose your mental strength, do not get scared. We are doing our best to tackle the situation. Citizens can later evaluate our work,” the mayor added.

Khokon said: “We have around 100 councilors and it is not true that all of them are inactive. We cannot even say that all of them are doing their job properly. We are trying to ensure coordinate.”

 “We heard that dengue fever identification tests are expensive. We will talk to the Health Ministry regarding the matter and ask them to keep the hospital environments and premises clean,” he added.

The mayor said this week they will provide aerosol to educational institutions.

He thanked the doctors and the citizens on their effort to fight this crisis.
