PHUKET:-- The Public Health and Environment Division of Rawai Municipality this week continued to roll out its campaign to contain the spread of dengue and chikungunya across the southern end of the island with fogging of local villages and households to help prevent disease-bearing mosquitoes from breeding.
 

Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos led a team to Baan Laem Promthep in Moo 6, Rawai, yesterday (19 June) to under the “Rawai together fights against haemorrhagic fever” campaign, which aims to prevent people from being infected by mosquito-borne dengue, chikungunya and Zika virus.

 

Health officers used fogging machines to douse mosquito-breeding areas and handed out bags of larvicidal sand granules to villagers to use around their homes to help prevent mosquitoes from breeding.

Good, let´s just hope that the smoke does not kill more than mosquitos.

It's refreshing to see the government actually addressing a problem instead of just talking about it.

Lived here 8 years, have had dengue twice and first time I've seen any campaign to fight this menace.... about bloody time!!!  People can get FREE 'tea bag' type packs of larvea killer (place in any still water around home) from the local govt. office... i bet most people don't know this and only found out by making my own enquiries.
