NEW DELHI: Delhi government today announced its Anti-Corruption Helpline - 1031 - as new helpline number for dengue-related queries.
The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, to give all relevant information about dengue and its treatment.
"As we were getting more calls on existing number - 011-23307145, we have decided to use ACB's helpline number 1031 as an additonal dengue helpline number," said a senior government official.
The official said that the tele-callers are in good numbers at ACB's call centres which will speed up the process to guide the callers.
"We will use ACB's helpline number as dengue helpline till the situation gets normal," official said.
Yesterday, Delhi government had launched a round-the clock helpline-- 011-23307145-- to help dengue patients. Kejriwal said this helpline will provide all relevant information relating to treatment of dengue.
Officials said the government yesterday directed its hospitals to cancel leave of all doctors, nurses and para-medics in view of the situation.
