THE Northern Division recorded 45 dengue positive cases out of the 1039 that were reported around the country.

The cases were recorded from October 30, 2013, to January 16.

Ministry of Health spokeswoman Evelyn Mani said the most number of dengue positive cases were from Macuata province.

"Awareness work in relation to dengue has been continuing within the division," she said.

"Our teams will be visiting rural villages and settlements to spread the news about the need to keep surroundings clean to curb the increasing incidence of the disease."

Ms Mani said families needed to keep their surroundings clean and hygienic.

"Empty water-filled cans, coconut shells, unused tyres, old whitegoods such as refrigerators, washing machines.

"These items sitting out in compounds can collect water and be perfect breeding places for dengue spreading mosquitoes.

"MOH reiterates to the public to destroy dengue mosquito breeding places."
