ICF holds Dengue Awareness Programme


Dengue Fever and Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever (a more severe form) are the most common mosquito-borne viral diseases in the world. Dengue Fever is an illness caused by infection with a virus transmitted by the Aedes mosquito, to prevent dengue fever; we must prevent the breeding of its carrier.

Aedes mosquitoes are identified by the black and white stripes on their body. We can get rid of the Aedes mosquito by frequently checking and removing stagnant water in our home and in the surrounding areas.

For the benefit of employees of ICF, Loco Works and Carriage & Wagon Works, HAPC an independent wing of Indian Railways Technical Supervisors Association (IRTSA) organized a health programme on “DENGUE AWARENESS & PREVENTION” on 02.11.2012 between 17.30 hours and 19.00 hours at TTC, AUDITORIUM, Integral Coach Factory.
