The Bali Health Service is calling on Island residents to be vigilant in taking steps to avoid being infected with dengue fever.
Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the man in charge of Bali’s Health Office, Dr. Ketut Suarjaya, said, “We ask the public to be aware of the threat of dengue fever and improve hygiene and cleanliness measures at their private residences.”
Suajaya said steps to prevent the propagation of the aede aegypti mosquito must be undertaken during the period of seasonal change when mosquito populations tend to peak.
Suarjaya said teams from his office are intensifying sweeps to destroy nesting areas for mosquitoes.
The Health official said his office is recommending to the Governor that special days be designated to mobilize the public to destroy potential nesting areas of mosquitoes.
