Each DNCC team is joined by four cleaners and one mosquito eradication worker in each sub-sector. Forty cleaners and 10 mosquito eradication workers are working in each ward.
The special clean-up operation was launched as the country had a massive dengue outbreak last year when 101,354 people were hospitalized and 179 people were killed by the mosquito-borne disease.
