conference in St Petersburg stadium that “everything ran perfectly” in Russia “We were hearing about violence about incidents about hooligans about racism but we had nothing” Infantino said referring to pre-tournament questions that have dogged football in the host nation Still the doping shadow cast on Russian sports by a series of World Anti-Doping Agency investigation reports since 2015 also re-emerged during the two-week World Cup dress rehearsal FIFA is aware of 155 potentially suspect samples given by players in Russia that need to be tested WADA-appointed investigator Richard McLaren

15 2017 5:36 am At Abul Fazal Enclave in Okhla one of the worst hit areas under the South Delhi Municipal Corporation last year Express Photo by Praveen Khanna Related News That’s all the time a domestic breeding checker has to figure out if there are mosquitoes at one home and educate residents about vector-borne diseases Doing the job properly takes thrice as long finds The Indian Express On April 28 the Delhi High Court was told by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation that domestic breeding checkers (DBCs) had made 91 lakh visits to conduct door-to-door inspection of mosquito breeding between January 1 and April 22 this year A week later on May 5 the SDMC filed another affidavit this time stating that DBCs had inspected 39 lakh houses by April 29 “This is a misleading figure… how can there be a decrease (in house visits)” pointed out advocate Arpit Bhargava who has filed a PIL in court demanding action against MCDs for their handling of vector-borne diseases The court then cautioned the MCD: “Get your act together… ensure people do not suffer” This is not the first time figures related to the dengue-chikungunya fight have come under scanner As the capital reeled under a chikungunya outbreak last year the National Green Tribunal in September 2016 said “The officer present before us has submitted that he has 700 people and they have visited 8 lakh houses meaning that there were 56 lakh visits This statement is difficult to believe and we in fact do not believe it” With Delhi recording the maximum number of cases of vector-borne infections — 40 of dengue and 96 of chikungunya — recorded in the first five months of 2017 as compared to the last six years 1171 DBCs working on a contractual basis are at the forefront of the fight to prevent another outbreak Malaria inspectors say there should be about 50 DBCs for each of the 272 wards Considered the backbone of infection control DBCs are responsible for inspection of houses imparting health education and taking anti-mosquito measures But a staff crunch is proving to be a major obstacle ‘Token’ visits The most stark fallout of this can be found in the basement of G-77/2 in Shaheen Bagh in Okhla one of the worst-hit areas under the SDMC last year This was where Mohammed Allaudin a watchman used to stay with his 13-year-old daughter The girl died in September last year after testing positive for chikungunya Her death — the first in the ward — sent shockwaves in the area prompting authorities to carry out anti-larval activities and DBCs to examine mosquito breeding in the building Since then not a single DBC has visited the house “The only time they visited was when the death was reported That too was a token visit” says Syed Aftab who stays on the second floor Entries made by the DBC for the ward accessed by The Indian Express show visits were made to the block Entries reveal that 14 DBCs have been employed against a sanctioned strength of 18 at Shaheen Bagh An entry dated June 3 2017 reveals that the DBC assigned for G block visited 57 houses and 51 houses a day earlier However he did not issue a single notice or challan “I was transferred to this area a month ago Issuing a challan here is very tough One does not know who the house owner is Most are tenants so we can’t issue challans” says the malaria inspector who travels from Najafgarh 40 km away every day An uphill task It only takes a day with a DBC to understand how challenging their job can be A 45-year-old DBC who did not wish to be named begins his day at 10 am He is supposed to cover 344 buildings in Shaheen Bagh “Don’t think I have to cover just 344 houses Here 344 buildings mean about 9500 households including unauthorised ones So if I visit a house today it is impossible to visit it in the next six months Because of staff shortage a DBC can only visit a household twice a year” the man who has been working on contract basis for over 20 years says This DBC spends about 15 minutes in each household “We work eight hours a day and cover about 32 homes in that period The MCD has given us a target of 50-60 houses which is possible only if I spend less than 10 minutes per house Checking a cooler and a refrigerator alone takes that much time The targets set by the authorities is not possible” he says However going by official figures 1171 DBCs made 143 crore visits across the city between January and June This translates to each DBC covering over 2400 houses per month By this logic a DBC doesn’t spend more than five minutes in each household “Authorities don’t give us a vehicle; we walk for kilometres in the heat climb several floors” he says “For two months I was asked to go to households to verify addresses of pensioners We had to jeopardise our actual work because of this In other wards DBCs are given work related to tax collection” DBCs are supposed to be monitored by malaria inspectors “Each inspector has to monitor 14 DBCs and six field workers looking after drains He also has to makes spot visits and check anti-larval activity But he can only keep a track of about three DBCs each day” he says “We get Rs 13000 per month and no benefits This uniform was given three years ago Last year I suffered from chikungunya The year before I suffered from dengue and was hospitalised Now I hear they are giving us digital tablets The government needs to give us medical benefits not tablets” the DBC says The malaria inspector monitoring him has other worries “I travel 100 km every day I can’t spend a lot of time here They should assign areas depending on where you live” he says An officer working at SDMC mayor Kamaljeet Sehrawat’s office said she is out of the country Officials said “there is no proposal to hire more DBCs” For all the latest Delhi
