Cases have been lodged against 41 people in Lahore after dengue larvae were found during a series of raids. 

Seven people have been taken into custody. The raids were conducted by the anti-dengue cell.

In Gulberg, a plaza and a restaurant were sealed because of unsanitary conditions.

The Lahore government is working to prevent dengue breeding grounds from being formed. The city’s deputy commissioner said they will check wherever water has collected and if dengue larvae are found, cases will be registered.
