Health officials have conducted fumigation operations in communities, schools and hospitals in Thailand’s central province of Ratchaburi after 14 Singaporean students and teachers on a study tour became ill from Chikungunya fever.

 

Chikungunya fever is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which also spreads the Zika and Dengue viruses.

 

Department of Disease Control (DDC) director-general Dr. Suwanchai Wattanayingchaorenchai said Ratchaburi provincial health investigators found many mosquito breeding grounds with the number of striped mosquito larvae exceeding standard levels in communities, schools and hospitals.

And as usual, no ongoing fumigation program until (in this case, foreigners) catch a mosquito borne disease....

How many hundreds of Thai people contract this disease... and there are rarely fumigation programs......anywhere!
