Gurgaon: 20 of 34 dengue cases from Wazirabad

The official added that most of the cases reported from Wazirabad were of “in-house” contraction of the disease, resulting from lack of precautions on the part of residents.

Gurgaon: 20 of 34 dengue cases from Wazirabad Many residents of the area, however, blamed laxity on the part of the authorities for the prevalence of the disease and, generally, mosquitoes in the area.

Of the 34 confirmed cases of dengue reported so far in Gurgaon this year, 20 have been from Wazirabad area, said health department officials Monday. The high incidence from Wazirabad, however, is not new.

“Ever since dengue became a problem in Gurgaon, the maximum cases each year are reported from Wazirabad… This is also because the area in Wazirabad is big and the population is higher than in other areas,” said an official. Wazirabad covers several parts of Gurgaon, including Sector 52, Sector 56, and Ardee City.

The official added that most of the cases reported from Wazirabad were of “in-house” contraction of the disease, resulting from lack of precautions on the part of residents.

Many residents of the area, however, blamed laxity on the part of the authorities for the prevalence of the disease and, generally, mosquitoes in the area. “If they carry out proper drives to keep the area clean, residents here would not fall ill so much. There is trash in open areas, even on the main roads, which no one bothers clearing. In monsoon, the water fills up. How do we keep mosquitoes away?” said Sushil Kumar, a resident of Wazirabad village.
