Dengue on the rise, 50% of the cases reported from the Western Province

The number of mosquito larvae has increased says the Health Entomologists Association.

Its Chairman Najith Sumanasena says that these facts were discovered during the surveys conducted by his officers.

Najith Sumanasena emphasized that although mosquito control programs to control the population of dengue mosquitoes have been implemented in many areas including the Western Province they have not reached the expected goals.

So far this year over 3000 dengue cases have been reported. 50% of the cases were reported from the Western Province.

The health sector points out that the general public has a responsibility to destroy all mosquito breeding areas and to prevent the spread of Dengue mosquitoes.
