A task force comprising of doctors and Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) officials has been formed by the Delhi government’s health department to check mosquito breeding at the commonwealth games village site, Delhi health minister told Governance Now here on Thursday.

“We have formed a task force to check the problem of mosquito breeding at the commonwealth games site. Doctors and MCD officials are on the panel and they will inspect the area regularly. Fogging is done on a regular basis where the problem has been detected. We have doctors from Lok Nayak hospital, Ram Manohar Lohia hospital and All India Institute of Medical Sciences on board,” said Walia.

She added that the control of dengue and malaria is not just the responsibility of the government, but citizens should also take equal responsibility and take precautions so that mosquito breeding does not take place at homes.

With the festive season approaching and to avoid the menace of adulterated sweets, Walia said that she has appointed a team under her ministry which will conduct regular raids across the city and check sweets made by milk products for purity.
