Malaria contained in NK districts

 
Out of the 3,500 blood samples colletected from several villages, only 236 have tested positive for the disease, said Malaria Prevention Unit’s senior health officer Dr S R Mudanur.  
Mudanur said the spread of malaria has been contained in the villages within 2-km radius of the two districts. There have been no malaria-related deaths either. Untimely rains in the month of October and stagnation of Alamatti backwater has provided a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Fogging will be undertaken in all the villages to contain the mosquitoes, he added.
Dr N S Tiwari, a scientist at National Malaria Prevention Institute will visit Alamatti on April 21 and undertake a week-long study of malaria-hit villages.
