Mosquitoes are giving sleepless nights to the residents of Kochi. With weather conditions turning favourable for mosquitoes to breed, the menace is assuming bigger proportions. The sunny days and chilly evenings are considered to be suitable for this.
The Corporation has allotted Rs.10,000 each to all the divisions for cleaning smaller drains. This step is being taken for preventing the breeding of mosquitoes in drains.
But don't mislead by this that Kochi is the only city with Mosquitoes!!
Kochi is the place which was affected to a lesser extent when Chickungunya was threat to Kerala. It was Pathanamthitta, Kottayam which were seriously affected along with Allapuzha.
If mosquito menace is so much I am in doubt why Kochi was affected less!!??
