...Such a comment is music to the ears of Dr. Mohammad Alam of the Cincinnati Health Department.
"I think in the last two or three years people now know the true story," said Dr. Alam
The standing water and mosquitos should be taken seriously, but people should know who is primarily at risk.
"We are all bitten by mosquito but we have resistance against the disease.The target population which suffers most are older people, very young people and people who have immunodefeciencies," said Dr. Alam
says that if water in any location remains stagnant for more than a few days people should call the health department.
"If we can identify the exact location our staff will go over there and not only determine the situation but also find the remedy," said Dr. Alam
