Australia : Latest dengue cases spark crackdown

An article from ABC News :

" The Townsville City Council will target North Ward this week as part of its campaign to stamp out dengue mosquito breeding sites.

The council says it is disappointed with the complacency of residents across the city after three more dengue cases were discovered in Railway Estate last week, bringing the latest outbreak to a total of 13.

Community safety and health committee chairman Dale Last says during door-to-door checks in the vicinity of the new cases it uncovered more than 20 properties with potential breeding sites."
