Malaysia : Increase in number of dengue cases worrying

Via Borneo Post Online :

" The increase in the number of dengue cases reported nationwide is worrying.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said 580 dengue cases were reported last week as compared to 400 cases previously.

“Most of the dengue cases were reported in residential areas and major towns.

“Hence, we really hope that the Communication for Behavioural Impact (Combi) programme will be intensified in the Neighbourhood Watch areas, as well as residential areas,” he told reporters after presenting donations to fire victims in Kampung Baru Cina Ketari near here.

A total of 120 people from 26 families were made homeless in the fire which broke out at 3.55pm last Wednesday."
