Ludhiana Soon to Become a Rabies-Free City

Ludhiana records an average of 600 dog bite cases every month at the Civil Hospital, and the city’s Municipal Corporation is yet to launch the anti-rabies drive in the city.

Civic body’s senior veterinary officer Dr. Harban Dhalla, however, said the tenders for the project to make the city rabies-free would be floated in the next 2-3 months.

The process is underway to get the approval for tenders, said Dr. Dhalla.

Dog bite cases are reported from different parts of the city each day. Two months ago, a girl reportedly died of rabies.

The project has received a ‘go-ahead signal’ from Mayor and MC Commissioner, and last month a resolution for the same was approved by the Finance & Contract Committee.

The project includes all the dogs along with the pet dogs in the city to be administered anti-rabies vaccine free of cost.

The MC will be able to make the city a rabies-free zone within the next 18-24 months after the launch of the project. Ludhiana will then be able to become the first rabies-free city in the country. The required vaccine will be purchased by the civic body in various phases.
