Dr. Keni Lego, District Vector Borne Disease Control Programme Control Officer while presenting a PowerPoint presentation regarding the various diseases like JE, Dengue, Malaria etc said that, the source reduction and keeping safe by using mosquito nets are the only preventive measures from these diseases. Though vaccine for JE is taken at this time, it won’t protect you from the disease as this medicine will get effective only after three months of its injection. Dr. Lego vividly explained the cause and preventive measures of all these diseases, but said that the people needn’t panic about the cases of outbreak of JE in the district as there was not even a single case of JE related death in the district.
