On the directions of RDA Director General Capt. (r) Tahir Zafar Abbasi, the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) has warned private housing societies that stringent action will be taken against violators of the Punjab government’s dengue Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
The RDA has also asked the administration of the Bahria Town housing estate to ensure strict adherence to anti-dengue SOPs, according to a RDA spokesman
According to the RDA’s Metropolitan Planning and Traffic Engineering (MP&TE) Directorate, strict conformity to SOPs is important in the fight against dengue.
Because present meteorological conditions favour dengue larvae breeding, stringent adherence to anti-dengue SOPs is necessary to avoid larvae transmission during the dengue season.
He stated that the role of private housing societies is significant in hindering the spread of dengue virus. He further added that it is the responsibility of each housing society to provide a dengue-free environment for its residents.
The recent rains have been considered appropriate for dengue mosquito breeding. In the current climate, not only may the dengue mosquito grow quickly, but it could also be exceedingly detrimental to human health, he warned.
According to the spokesman, a substantial number of residents of Bahria Town 1, 2, 3, Safari Villas-I, II, and Bahria Phase Town Phase-8 were not taking preventative measures against dengue. Dengue virus may spread in various housing societies due to noncompliance with SOPs.
He warned that if the matter was not managed properly, the dengue virus could spread throughout Bahria Town. The RDA would take strict legal action against anyone found breaking the SOPs, he added.
