Many Condolences and a Dengue Prevention Programme

We mourn the passing of one of us, a young medical student who had succumbed to dengue and passed away last month. May she rest in peace. But for the rest of us, bear in mind that the fight against dengue is far from over. Keep your places in check and free from mosquitoes-breeding and use aerosol on a regular basis.

 Until dengue vaccine has been produced, dengue fever will continue to plague us. Even our best hope for dengue vaccination candidate is undergoing phase IV clinical trials which is due for completion in 2016 the earliest.

For now, elimination of adult mosquitoes by aerosol or fogging is half a preventive step, but eliminating the Aedes breeding sites are of utmost importance.  Play your part now and together we can make this a better place to live in.
