Dengue warning

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

LOCAL government officials in the west are urging people to take dengue warnings seriously because it was now a national problem.

The death of a diver from Ra last week meant the problem was not confined to the Central Division alone, said Ra provincial administrator Kelepi Kubunameca.

"I would like to now issue a very stern message to everyone in Ra to please keep your surroundings clean for the epidemic is at our doorsteps," he said.

He said his officers had been deployed to conduct checks, give advice throughout the district and were working with the Ra Rural Authority, the Ministry of Health and also the village heads.

"We have returned from Raiwasa Village where a few cases were recorded and are happy to see a lot of work done in their surroundings."

Mr Kubunameca also issued a request to all schools to also do the same in their respective compounds.

Ba district officer Sitiveni Tavaga said though no reports had been received, people should take precautions.
