Dhruvajoti Banerjee: The central government has not announced any protocol to deal with the new strain of dengue. So awareness is trust. Speaking in the Legislative Assembly on Thursday, Public Works and Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim urged all anti-ruling parties to spread awareness.

This new strain of dengue fever, called “Dengue 3” or “Den 3”, has caused concern. Awareness is the main hope of the state or municipalities to deal with this at this time. Along with minimal treatment, municipalities are working to raise awareness. Firhad pointed out this reality while answering questions from opposition party MPs, including Siliguri Member of Parliament Shankar Ghosh in the Legislative Assembly. Referring to the Centre’s protocol, he said, “We don’t know the protocol yet.” The situation is worrying. Several died. No heavy rain this time. But the weather conditions are not better either. 30% of the total number of patients live in cities, 70% in rural areas. But no matter how hard the authorities try, it will not happen if people are not aware. Convince them. He later added, “The central government has not informed us of any protocol to deal with the new strain of dengue. So, awareness is trust.”
