An aedes aegypti mosquito which can spread malaria and dengue fever
Punjab is preparing for a dengue outbreak and authorities have confirmed everything that can be done to prevent the virus will be done.
Chief minister Shahbaz Sharif reminded MPAs and department reps of the hard work of nurses, paramedical staff and elected representatives during last year's outbreak of the virus, saving thousands of lives.
The warning is a timely reminder for people with ongoing health problems to take out
travel insurance with medical conditions before jetting off.
The Chief minister guaranteed that everything in his power is being done to tackle the very likely outbreak of the upcoming season.
Authorities also said specialists are training more people to deal with dengue, but it's always good to remember that World First offer simple screening and cost-effective cover for thousands of medical conditions.
Sharif also announced he is working on dengue awareness by including a chapter in the educational syllabus.
