The ongoing drives will continue in Dhaka South City Corporation areas to control dengue, said its mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh on Wednesday.
He said this while exchanging views with journalists after inaugurating an interim waste disposal center at Tantibazar intersection in Ward 36 of the city.
"We are currently operating a total of nine mobile courts and have started getting results. The number of dengue patients is now declining," he said.
"Dengue situation is now under conrol although the number of dengue patients is a bit more this time due to heavy rainfall," the mayor said.
Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh called on the people of Dhaka to offer Eid-ul-Azha prayer by maintaining all health guidelines.
