Subject : Outbreak of malaria epidemic in the city of Lucknow
The onset of monsoon has aggravated the problem of waterlogging in the city of Lucknow. One has to wade through knee-deep water to reach office or school when it rains. This problem is more acute in the old city areas of Lucknow like Chowk, Daliganj and Thakurganj. The drainage system here is in shambles, causing great hardships to the residents of these localities. The stagnant water in the choked drains and low lying areas, is the breeding ground for mosquitoes, that has resulted in the outbreak of malaria in these localities.
There is immediate need to clear the choked drains and pump out the stagnant water from the low-lying areas. To curtail the spread of the epidemic spraying of disinfectants and fogging is immediately required in these localities. To help those already infected with malaria, there is need to set up a special health camps for providing prompt medical aid.
I am sure you will appreciate the gravity of the situation and take immediate steps to save valuable lives.
