Special programme for dengue eradication

Apr 10, 2011 4:55:09 AM - itnnews.lk

A special programme is being launched for dengue control through daily inspection.

The Epidemiology Department of the Health Ministry has launched the programme with computer assistance. Additional Secretary to the Health Ministry Dr. Palitha Mahipala said that their aim is to prevent the spread of the disease by collecting data of dengue patients from all hospitals through the internet. A special focus is being made on the control of dengue due to reports indicating that highest numbers of patients were reported in April every year. Light rain in the night and warm weather during the day provides a favourable condition for mosquito breeding.
