“Physicians’ Colony (Madahapur) and Golf View Apartment are a few among many areas visited by GHMC officials on Sunday. We discovered breeding areas like flower pots and water stagnation points. We clarified to residents and centre managers the need to empty stagnant water,” read a statement issued from the GHMC.
The trip to home societies has been created as part of’Each Sunday 10 moments 10am’ campaign. Included in this effort, individuals should invest 10 minutes each Sunday draining stagnant water which may become a breeding area for mosquitoes, resulting in dengue and other ailments.
