Shakib campaign Adis mosquito eradication

Bangladesh cricket superstar Shakib Al Hasan on Thursday joined a campaign to raise awareness against mosquito-borne dengue which has spread all over the country,

The campaign was held at Banani Bidyaniketan School & College. "Dengue is now nearly an epidemic in the country which has never happened before. 

The virus is now spreading all over the country.
 So, I think everyone should be aware about it,
" Shakib told the media. 

I am not affected by dengue now but I understand how painful it can be because I suffered once before,

Under the campaign, Shakib sprayed anti-mosquito medicines on the campus of Banani Bidyaniketan School & College in the presence of its 6,500 students. 

Shakib is currently out of action as he had asked for a leave for personal reasons prior to the just-concluded three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka.
