NEW DELHI: Due to rise in number of cases of dengue and chikungunya reported from various places of Delhi NCR. UrbanClap- a marketplace for services- has come forward to give a pest control camp at two locations in Delhi.
UrbanClap has deployed pest control professionals in the areas like Jamia Nagar and Okhla Mundi which are adversely affected by Chikungunya and Dengue. As across the city, these areas too are reeling with fever related to dengue andchikungunya. Slum areas people do not have the wherewithal to get pest control done, residents there blame the lack of cleanliness and waterlogging, as the reasons why localities are reeling under these epidemics.
UrbanClap strongly felt the need to come out and chip in to help and prevent increasing chances of people contracting these diseases by conducting the mosquito control activity. After its successfull campaign last year during Chennai floods, UrbanClap has yet again stand firmed with the society. Although, the government is trying it’s best, UrbanClap aims to provide a helping hand to make the current situation better.
Commenting on the initiative, Varun Khaitan, Co-founder UrbanClap – “Diseases such as dengue and chikungunya can be prevented through simple pest control methods and avoiding water stagnation. It’s our duty to help those who cannot get these services easily as public health is not just the responsibility of the government but every citizen.”
