Chief Minister Digambar Kamat released an animation film titled “Mosquito Control: I Can Do It” at a function held at Kala Academy on Monday.
The film has been produced by Rajashri Bandodkar Karapurkar for Goa University and National Academy of Vector Borne Diseases (Western Region).
Speaking on the occasion Chief Minister complimented the Goa University and NAVBD for the animation film. He said Goa University has taken a right step to create awareness among young minds to control the menace.
The Vice Chancellor of Goa University Shri Dilip Deobagkar said we cannot eliminate mosquitoes but we have to keep away from them using simple measures. The film will go a long way in educating people about such simple measures.
The release is timely given the fact that diseases like malaria, dengue, chikangunya which are transmitted by the mosquito are on the rise in Goa.
