Public warned to be alert on the dengue epidemic

Minister Rajitha Senaratne has instructed officials to take immediate action to control the spread of dengue as there is a rise in the spread of the disease. He gave these instructions during a programme held in Colombo.
The number of dengue cases reported during this year was 49,132. Health Sectors pointed out that the growth in the spread of dengue has been reported with the receipt of the Northeast monsoonal rain. As such it has been decided to deploy 1500 field officials for fumigation activities. The law is to be strictly enforced against those maintaining dengue mosquito breeding grounds.
Meanwhile the Health Ministry has called for the launch of cleanup operations in schools on the 29th, 30th and 31st of this month before the commencement of the new school term. At a media conference, the Government Medical Officers Association warned of a danger in the rise of the dengue epidemic.
