As BMC sleeps, about 100 suspected Dengue and Malaria cases reported in Mumbai Western Suburbs, says NGO, BCAF

Social organization Bharat Citizens Action Forum or BCAF has upped the ante against the Greater Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for its lackadaisical attitude towards controlling and preventing diseases like Dengue and Malaria in Mumbai.

According to BCAF spokesperson in Mumbai, Manjari Yadav, “The BMC is spending crores of rupees of public funds on huge hoardings, banners, BEST bus advertisements regarding Malaria and Dengue, but there is no proper implementation of sanitation or fumigation in the city. Expensive localities in the western suburbs of Mumbai like Andheri-Lokhandwala, Lokhandwala, Kandivli-Lokhandwala, Oshiwara, Juhu, etc have become a hot bed of Dengue and Malaria with over 100 suspected cases reported in the last two months,” Yadav said, adding that the BCAF has done a survey among GPs (general practitioners) and other specialists doctors including testing labs in the Western Suburbs of Mumbai starting from Bandra to Dahisar. “Over 1000 blood samples were sent to various medical labs for testing in the last one month alone, and about 100 cases of suspected dengue have been reported,” Yadav said.
