 Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Thursday called for house visits in the national capital as part of efforts to prevent the spread of dengue and malaria.

Harsh Vardhan made the appeal at a meeting with Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain and the heads of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital and other hospitals on the preventive measures to be taken for dengue, chikungunya and malaria. 

"From next week, we will go to houses to personally inspect and find mosquitoes and larvae. This will help in making people aware so that they keep their surroundings clean," he said ahead of the start of monsoon season.  IANS
