THE hunt for mosquito breeding places continued throughout the country yesterday.

More people joined the national anti-dengue fever clean-up campaign.

Families, workmates and young children flocked to the Sukuna Park early yesterday morning to join in the clean-up which reached My Suva Picnic Park.

National clean-up committee member Elia Lawena said it was pleasing to note that people joined hands in the fight against the deadly epidemic.

"We would like to encourage the public to join us again next Saturday as we conduct a clean-up to destroy mosquito breeding places," he said.

"Responses from some corporate bodies and stakeholders have been overwhelming and they have assisted us a lot in the campaign.

"We are also encouraged by the wider participation and we know we are going to have more people who will support the campaign against dengue fever."
