Northern locality warns of dengue fever


The northern province of Ninh Binh is taking measures to prevent a possible outbreak of dengue fever after five cases have been reported in the province since July.

According to Nguyen Ngoc Phu, doctor at the provincial Preventive Health Centre, people should raise awareness of prevention requirements because the current rainy season is a hotbed for mosquito larvae to breed.

He said the patients in the province got the disease after travelling to outside the locality.

Ninh Binh Department of Health asked all individuals and relevant agencies to reduce the risks of epidemics in residential areas by cleaning up the environment, spraying chemicals to kill mosquito while getting doctor and hospitals ready for treatment.-VNA
