Referring to the June research, the entomologist said, ‘We have conducted surveys in different wards of Dhaka. The density of Aedes mosquito larvae and adult mosquitoes is over 20. This test is called the Bruto Index.
Kabirul Bashar said if 20 or more larvae and adult mosquitoes were found in 20 or more of every 100 breeding sources in the survey, it could be called a risky presence. From there, Aedes can cause mosquito-borne diseases. If it is between 10 and 20, it can be assumed that there is a fair presence of mosquitoes.
According to the Public Relations Branch of Dhaka South City Corporation, mobile courts have been operating in all places as directed by the Department of Health since April 1 to eradicate the dengue-carrying Aedes mosquito. In addition, regular larvicide (destruction of mosquito larvae) and adulticide (destruction of adult mosquitoes) are being done as per the rules.
