Tajul Islam said, we can fight dengue through everyone’s awareness. There is no substitute for awareness, anywhere in the world. Countries that have achieved success in combating dengue have also been able to ensure the conscious participation of all people.

The local government minister also said that according to the statistics given to us by the experts, we are cautious and we are all aware accordingly. Working consciously may have been able to keep it under our control until now. I hope all city corporations including Dhaka-Chittagong, Upazila and Union Parishad will do what they need to do from their respective positions.
