PEOPLE have been reminded that the completion of the national anti-dengue clean-up campaign yesterday is not the end.

"We must continue this initiative and make it a part of our everyday living," said Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand.

Mr Chand closed the four-week national campaign at the Housing Authority headquarters in Valelevu yesterday.

"There have been a number of recommendations made by the taskforce as to how we are going to organise this in the future and I am sure the Health Ministry and relevant authorities will give further consideration to that within the context of their budget and their work groups," he said.

"The national statistics has reached to 18,969 clinically suspected cases of dengue and this is a concern for all of us. "

Mr Chand said since Fiji was a tropical country, people needed to continue to be vigilant of dengue carrying mosquitoes.

He said more than 4000 people participated collecting more than 150 tonnes of rubbish nationwide.
