Aggressive approach

Jone Kalouniviti

THE anti-dengue campaign will be carried out aggressively again in Ra Province when the rain ceases.

Early this week, the province had 31 confirmed cases recorded at all health centres with 280 suspected cases, and the authorities want to keep the numbers down.

Ra provincial administrator Kelepi Kubunameca said the anti-dengue campaign must go hand in hand with all major operations to save costs.

"We know the floods will wash the breeding places out, but afterwards the threat will come up again," said Mr Kubunameca.

"We have been dealing with the dengue epidemic, the flood issue, water problems and also the continuation of the cyclone rehabilitation program.

"But the real threat, realistically, is dengue because we will have to use up a lot of our resources and this will affect business and everything else if we do not work to minimise the threat."
