He said Nabukavesi had six reported cases, Tokotoko area had seven cases, Vuninokonoko had five cases, Wainividio, Makosoi and Vunibau had six cases while Calia reported nine cases.

Mr Waqanidrola said the Health Ministry had been creating a lot of awareness through its clean-up campaigns.

"The dengue issue has been highlighted in every tikina meeting for the province of Serua and Namosi. Most people affected by dengue are from the ages of 25 and above, the oldest is 73 years old," he said.

He said the people of Namosi needed to assist the Health Ministry in tackling the spread of dengue in the province.
