Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) mayor Atiqul Islam said mosquito menace is going to be controlled through mobile applications.

“We will control Aedes mosquito in the city successfully though two mobile applications.  The apps have been developed to preserve data on mosquito breeding grounds with pictures which will be used for drive and monitoring,” he said. 

He made the remarks while addressing a meeting of the DNCC at a community centre in Mirpur on Wednesday.

The mayor said dengue and chikungunya cannot take serious turn this year due to massive drive undertaken by the city corporation.
