THE Northern Division has recorded 10 cases of dengue fever this year, divisional medical officer north Doctor Pablo Romakin has confirmed.
To stop the spread of dengue, he said health officials had already drawn up plans for a major clean-up campaign.
"The situation this year is better than previous years and the cases reported have been from January," Dr Romakin said.
"We will have this clean-up in Labasa Town area and the other divisions will also carry out their clean-up programs," he said. "The clean-up will reach out to residential areas where home owners will clean their backyard and get rid of all the rubbish.
"We will certainly target mosquito breeding areas and the whole community will be involved."
Meanwhile, Dr Romakin said no typhoid cases were recorded over the past few months.
"The situation has improved a lot and we thank the public for taking heed of basic advice to prevent the spread of typhoid," he said.
"The attitude of the community has changed and that is encouraging to note."
Dr Romakin said awareness programs continued in residential areas, including villages and settlements in rural areas.
