THE dengue fever clean-up campaign will continue in the North if the need arises, says Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu.

While the nation's four-week campaign ended on Saturday, Mr Bolalevu said they were looking into extending the activity in an attempt to control the mosquito-borne disease from spreading.

"This is expected to be our last day of cleaning but it looks like we will continue," he said on Saturday.

"All the government departments have been given a location to clean and the officials were assisted by stakeholders and people from all walks of life.

"This is not just about picking up rubbish but also an opportunity to educate people to take full responsibility of keeping their surroundings clean." Mr Bolalevu reiterated the need for people to ensure a clean and safe environment.

"This is not only to fight against dengue fever but other diseases and illnesses as well.

"Let's make it a habit to keep our surroundings clean."
