Centre reports dengue cases

THE Lekutu Health Centre in Bua has so far received a total of two cases of dengue fever since November last year.

Speaking during the recent Lekutu district meeting, centre medical officer Auvou Tugia said both cases were clinical dengue fever.

Ms Tugia said even though they had not recorded anymore cases from the district, they've continued with their village campaigns to ensure cases of dengue in the district were controlled.

"We also noted that most of the suspected dengue case patients preferred to be treated at Labasa Hospital," she said.

"However, this has not changed the health centre's continuing efforts to create awareness and hold campaigns in settlements and villages within the district.

"The strongest message we are trying to put across to members of the public is that if they need to curb the spread of dengue, they need to have a clean surroundings."

Ms Tugia also told district representatives they were working closely with the police in the reporting of domestic violence cases for prosecution. "To date we have received no cases of domestic violence or abuse from the district.

"However, we will not hesitate to report cases we are aware of once they come to our attention. We are working closely with police in Lekutu and Nabouwalu in ensuring victims of violence do not suffer in silence under the threat of more violence."
