Urgent action urged

COMMISSIONER Western Commander Joeli Cawaki says the time to clean up the division is now, in light of the good weather forecasted.

"Not tomorrow, not next week but now while we have the sun out, let's not wait for the rain again, we must kill these mosquitoes," he said.

Cdr Cawaki said the number of reported dengue cases continued to rise in the West, and this meant people must seriously re-examine themselves and their compounds.

"The intense awareness programs have been carried out and the spraying conducted daily yet the numbers still increase."

Today, civil servants will execute another major clean-up in all major centres in the division, and Cdr Cawaki has extended an invitation to the public and schools to join the campaign.
