In view of our tropical climate, dengue has become a yearly and widespread challenge especially during the rainy seasons. Lives had been lost from dengue.The Aedes mosquito needs only clean, stagnant water as small in volume as the size of a 20-cent coin to breed. The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from dengue, is prevention.
Those living in dengue cluster areas, should do the following three protective actions:
1. Spray insecticide in dark corners around the house 2. Apply insect repellent regularly 3. Wear long sleeve tops and long pants
NEA advises that persons with dengue can help prevent further transmission by applying repellent regularly so that mosquitoes do not bite them and pick up the virus from them.
To prevent the Aedes mosquito from breeding in your homes and nearby areas, practise the following 5-step Mozzie Wipeout at least once a week:
