Seeto: Hotels unaffected

FIJI Hotel and Tourism Association president Dixon Seeto says major hotels will not be impacted by the dengue outbreak because routine operations will remove the threat of mosquito breeding sites.

Mr Seeto said they also do not expect business to be affected badly as a result of the public advisories being sent out.

"We really do not expect any threat in the hotels because all hotels do regular insect-spraying to maintain a clean environment for occupants," he said.

"And because we live in the tropics, all hotels are required to advise their occupants to use insect repellants to protect themselves inside or outside the facilities."

Mr Seeto said some hotels were even helping the villages and communities in their various locations with spraying and clean-up campaigns.

"We are happy that the government and the media have come down hard on awareness of the epidemic.

"We are also happy some companies have been prosecuted because their compounds have become high risk breeding areas."
