Fewer dengue cases in PJ


The Sedar programme involves volunteers working with residents‘ groups to get communities to inspect their housing areas for potential mosquito breeding grounds.

PETALING Jaya has seen a 31% reduction in the number of reported dengue cases since the introduction of the Search and Destroy Aedes Ranger (Sedar) programme a year ago, said a local council officer.

“The Sedar Programme has been very effective in reducing the number of cases after it was introduced in November last year,” said Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) Health and Environmental Services Department deputy enforcement director Low Ching Keat.
