Public-health squad swarms South Pattaya apartment after dengue outbreak

image.png

PATTAYA:--Pattaya public health teams converged on the Soi Khopai Community after two residents came down with dengue fever.

 

The health department officers, joined by Surveillance and Rapid Response Team volunteers, destroyed breeding grounds for dengue-carrying mosquitos at an apartment complex on Soi Sukrudee 2 Feb. 11. They dumped water sources, flipped over buckets and containers and dropped abate into puddles and other standing water.

 

Volunteers then spread out, educating residents about how dengue spreads and advised them to wear long-sleeved shirts and apply insect repellant until the threat has subsided.

 

The visit came after an adult and child living in the complex contracted dengue from mosquitos buzzing around all the standing water there. Both are being treated at Banglamung Hospital.

 

Anyone requiring mosquito abate or fumigation can call the Public Health Department at 038-429-738.

"Advised them to wear long-sleeved shirts."
 
Maybe these officers should practice what they preach?

The Aedes mosquito which transmits dengue fever is active approximately 2 hours after sunrise and several hours after sunset. So if these personnel were attending during normal business hours, there would be minimal need for them to wear long sleeves. But nice of you to have the first post as a bash.

Where did you get that incorrect information from? So these mosquitoes of yours can see in the dark!

Or did you change it to make some point?

Nope. Didn’t change it to make a point. I was just incorrect. A mistake on my part.

My estate has five confirmed cases of dengue.  The health officials came round to smoke the neighbourhood.  Despite advanced notice, many residents did not open their gates in case their dog got a cough.

This is a Pattaya topic so mentioning  smoking could give some readers the wrong idea about what these health officials were actually doing, especially for those that did open their gates 😉😉

Is prevention not better than the cure?
