Health officers will carry out house-to-house inspections to find out where the breeding compounds are
RESIDENTS in Section 8 and 24 in Shah Alam are urged to give their full co-operation to the authorities during Ops Gigit II, an operation to combat aedes mosquitoes.
Shah Alam mayor Ramli Mahmud said at the MBSA full board meeting recently that it would be jointly organised by the Shah Alam City Council and the Petaling Health Office.
“The two areas have recorded the highest number of dengue cases in Shah Alam,'' said Ramli, adding that last week alone Section 8 had seven cases while there were five in Section 5.
Ramli said health officers would carry out a house-to-house inspection to find out where the breeding compounds were. “At the same time the council will do its part by creating awareness among the people on the fever and its symptoms,'' he said.
“We will also carry out fogging and issue summons to those found guilty of having breeding grounds for aedes mosquitoes,” said Ramli.
The Dengue Operations Room will operate from 8am to 8.30pm daily throughout Ops Gigit II. Ramli said residents who faced problems, had enquiries or wished to lodge complaints regarding dengue could do so by contacting 03-5522 2793.
