Fighting Against Dengue

The vector-control teams from Manchester, Clarendon, and St Elizabeth have ramped up their vector-control activities and public education to assist with fighting the dengue outbreak.

Public-health officials from the Manchester Health Services shared information with residents from Allison in Manchester on Wednesday on how to prevent dengue fever and eliminate mosquito breeding sites. The public-education exercise was held at the Assemblies of the First Born Church in the parish. The health team also assisted the community members with establishing a health committee that will assist in sensitising residents about dengue fever and how to destroy mosquito breeding sites.
