Dengue forces corporation to cancel leave
New Delhi: The North Delhi Municipal Corporation has cancelled all leave of its malaria department employees in view of rising dengue cases, an official said Wednesday.
“No leave of any kind including Sundays will be allowed to the staff,” health officer A.K. Bansal said. “They can take compensatory leave later."
On Tuesday, the corporation suspended the deputy health officer and the malaria inspector of the badly-hit Rohini zone.
Of the 1,355 cases reported from Delhi and adjoining areas, 663 cases are from the north corporation zone. Dengue has killed two people in Delhi.
