Dengue cases angers MP

Thursday, December 07, 2017

APIA - Samoa member of Parliament Olo Fiti Vaai is a worried man.

He is alarmed by the number of dengue fever patients at the Moto'otua Hospital, especially young children.

He has also questioned why many schools remain opened when from his research, he found many children had contracted the virus from other students at school.

"Dengue fever a serious virus and I am furious about the lack of a full force campaign to eliminate the mosquitoes' breeding sites," he said.

"My visit to the hospital was a clear indication about the seriousness of the problem and from speaking to the nurses and health workers, it became clear that most of the children hospitalised were affected from the schools."
