Mysuru: The threat of Covid-19 pandemic is yet to subside fully, the chances of epidemic cannot be ignored.

Heavy rain that wreaked havoc in the city on Wednesday, gives rise to the possibilities with dengue cases already on rise across the State.

Most of the roads with porous points were left waterlogged due to the heavy downpour making it difficult for the pedestrians and vehicles to wade through with much difficulties.

Amid this, most of the prominent roads plunged into dark owing to cut in power supply to avoid any damages.

As the rain water flowed through storm water drains and huge drains, the manholes were choked at places overflowing on the road adding to the misery.

A stretch of road in front of St Thomas School in Visveshwara Nagar which is replete with potholes was accumulated by overflowing sewage water from the manhole in front of the school gate.

Taking notice, MCC gangmen were quick to attend and were seen removing the blockages.

Similarly the roads near St Mary’s Convent on Ramanuja road, near Apollo BGS Hospitals in Kuvempunagar, Ta Ra Su circle in Chamundipuram, M N Sreenivasaiah Circle (five lights circle) near Seth Mohandas Tulsidas Memorial Hospital on JLB road, Vedantha Hemmige Circle near SDM College to name a few were water logged in the night, with water yet to be cleared on Thursday morning.

Water gushed into houses at low lying areas at Kumbarakoppal and behind Basaveshwara temple in Paduvarahalli. 

If the situation continues, the open pits with water will turn into a breeding ground for larvaes that spread epidemic especially dengue.

It is high time MCC authorities take action to check the spread of epidemic.
