On alert following chikungunya outbreak

Dr Param Jeeth says the hotspots for chikungunya are areas with clogged drains and water ponding, and abandoned houses which are perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

A RESIDENTIAL area in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur has been identified as the site of a chikungunya outbreak in the city, with 56 confirmed cases so far.

Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya Health Department said the outbreak in Taman Dato Senu was first detected on Feb 16.
