From Our Correspondent

TURA, May 20: As part of National Dengue Day, a programme to disseminate awareness on dengue, its causes, preventive measures and control methods was held at SSA RMSA Secondary School in Chiringpara, South West Garo Hills.
The programme was attended by West Garo Hills District Malaria Officer Dr. B Marak as the chief guest, while DSEO I/C T Marak attended the programme as guest of honour.
In her keynote address, the chief guest emphasised the critical importance of prevention in combatting dengue, noting that there is no medicine to cure this viral disease.
She highlighted the need for households to engage in source reduction, which involves preventing waste and reducing stagnant water where mosquitoes breed.
On the other hand, the guest of honour spoke about the importance of education, addressing the low literacy rates in the district.
He urged parents to ensure their children maintain regular study schedules and attend school consistently.
He also encouraged participants to spread the dengue prevention messages within their communities.
As part of the programme, a quiz competition, focusing on dengue awareness and preventive methods, was organised for students.
