Radio Choklate runs campaign for dengue awareness

MUMBAI: Radio Choklate, one of the leading radio stations of Odisha, had planned a seven day long awareness campaign for dengue - 'Dengue Savdhaan' with RJ Komal.

As monsoon rains continue across Odisha, an increasing number of dengue and malaria cases has gripped the state. The number of dengue patients has risen from 1400 to 1600 in the last few weeks.

Radio Choklate has taken a pro-active step by going to the municipal corporation authorities like the mayor, civic officers and local MLAs to interview them.

RJ Komal is also visiting dengue-affected areas where she interacts with the locals and helps them connect to the health officers for assistance.

Radio Choklate programming head Sangram Mishra says, "Our main motto is to make people understand the importance of hygiene in day-to-day life. Today is the sixth day of our campaign for which we made various capsules and scheduled an evening talk show with RJ Komal."
