Malaysia : MP's educates residents on dengue-fighting measures

Via The Star :

" THE high number of dengue cases at Bandar Tasik Puteri, Rawang has prompted the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) to make “friendly” house-to-house visits to educate the residents on precautionary measures to avoid the deadly disease.

A joint team made up of officers from the council and the district health office visited close to 3,000 households in Green Valley Park, Bandar Tasik Puteri, which reported 55 dengue cases so far this year.

There were no summons issued during this exercise as MPS preferred to use the soft approach to educate residents on the danger of allowing water to be trapped in fish ponds, gutters, cans, containers and other objects placed outside the homes."
