HEALTH inspectors in the Western Division are working round-the-clock to prevent the further spread of dengue fever.
Divisional health inspector Rakesh Kumar said spraying campaigns and the inspection of high risk areas were being conducted.
"We've already started doing these exercises as a precautionary measure and we will continue to monitor high risk areas to ensure no more cases of dengue arise," said Mr Kumar.
"There are very few cases of dengue that have been recorded and that is a good sign for us in the West.
"But we are not letting that stop us from going to residential areas and the main CBD areas and conducting our spraying campaigns and assessments."
Mr Kumar said health inspectors were concentrating on identifying breeding spots of the dengue fever-causing mosquitoes.
"We are concentrating on looking for the Aedes species of mosquitoes — this is the breed that causes dengue fever.
"When we do find these breeding spots, then the necessary steps like spraying the area will be done."
Mr Kumar said the public was also responsible for ensuring their back yards and surrounding areas were kept mosquito-free.
"This is all common sense. People need to do what is necessary to prevent any mosquito entering their homes."
