After health department failed to take any action over the scare of Dengue epidemic in Rajouri, district administration intervened in the matter to restore confidence among people. 

As per sources within health department, repeated information of fear in public regarding Dengue outbreak in Rajouri was reaching health department Rajouri but no major concern was shown. 

" Except some minor steps and some actions confined to papers only, health department failed to do anything allowing public fear to reach on a tension causing level " said sources. 

It has also been learnt that information of wrong practice by some private diagnostic labs in Rajouri was with health department Rajouri and a team of health department also raided some of these labs but no action was taken allowing situation to deteriorate further. 

" Health department not even bothered to share advisory for people to minimise fear among them " sources further said adding that only today, district administration Rajouri intervened in the issue and found one private diagnostic lab spreading this fear while necessary clarification has also been issued restoring confidence among people. 

" Still, there is a major fear among people who claim Dengue epidemic in Rajouri and authorities need to work on different quarters for minimising the situation and to ensure needed treatment of Dengue affected patients, if any, in Rajouri " sources further said.
