MCD health officer, N K Yadav, said: ‘‘At the Games Village, a wall has been constructed near the road and pits have been dug up near it. These pits get filled up with water in rain and become mosquito breeding grounds.’’
MCD claimed it was also facing problems while carrying out fogging near the Games Village. ‘‘Because of the construction of the wall around the area, we cannot take our vehicle-mounted fogging machines near the pits to spray chemical larvicides in them,’’ the official added.
With rains likely in October as well, the civic agency is getting jittery on how it will handle the situation during the Games. MCD has now hired 280 anti-malaria inspectors.
