Briefing Star of Mysore on the subject, the Department Deputy Director K. Radha said that there are over 2,860 Anganawadi Centres in the district and it is proposed to provide one mosquito net measuring 10ftx10ft to each centre and the proposal would be sent to the government. She further said that many Gram Panchayats in Hunsur and T. Narasipur have already purchased insecticide treated mosquito nets and distributed them to Anganawadi Centres in their jurisdiction. She added that the Department was planning to meet the Deputy Commissioner to prevail upon corporate houses to provide nets to the Anganawadi Centres under their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative.

She added that the Department had provided mats and pillows to the centres and bedsheets will be supplied by a private company which would be followed up.

    Unless and until you wrap yourself with the bednet during day times, use of bednet to protect from dengue during night times is futile because the dengue Aedes mosquitoes are only biting during day time, and NOT at night!
