THE proactive measures taken by the authorities in Nadi have boosted the fight against dengue fever in Nadi.

Nadi district officer Jiuta Waqavonovono said spraying would now be a daily activity in hotspots around Nadi area.

"We have conducted a major clean-up from last week. So from this week, we have begun spraying from 5pm to 7pm every day," Mr Waqavonovono said.

He added the Nadi District office had thrown its full weight behind the anti-dengue campaign.

"The fight against this must be done thoroughly so that it does not affect other social or business activities in Nadi," he said.

West planning officer Luke Moroivalu confirmed to this newspaper Nadi recorded 350 confirmed dengue cases as of last week, the highest in the division.
