Councils embark on mosquito spraying

THE anti-dengue fever spraying campaign is working well for municipal councils.

Nasinu and Suva, which have recorded the most number of cases, are into the final stages of spraying while two West councils have joined the campaign.

Nadi Town Council special administrator Robin Ali said the spraying campaign started last week and would be continuing.

"We have done a lot of work and our health inspectors are doing house-to-house inspection," Mr Ali said.

"This will go on for some time — the response has been very good.

"Fortunately, our clean-up has been going on for a while and this helped a lot in the current campaign."

Sigatoka special administrator Jay Whyte said spraying was carried out two weeks ago.

He said even though Sigatoka recorded the lowest number of dengue cases, ratepayers and villagers had been urged to destroy mosquito breeding places.

Nasinu Town Council will carry out the second phase of spraying on Monday while the Suva City Council has completed spraying, however, it's attending to ratepayers who call them up for garbage collections.
