There seem to be a raised in the dengue cases with 18 cases of Dengue Fever and one cases of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever reported from 10th January to 23rd January. According to the statistic provided by our Councillior Madam Theresa Ratnam Thong, 15 cases were reported in SS18 and 3 cases in SS14.
There was no recent case reported in our neighbourhood except for the one reported in the 2nd week of December 2009. The one reported came as no surprise especially when it was found out that nearly half of the houses inspected during our community goyong royong campaign on the 5th December 2009 were found to have some traces of suspected Aedes larvae and the house owners were fined RM100 by MPSJ.
Let us all play our part to ensure that not only our neighbourhood is free from crime but also free from dengue by make the extra effort and spend 10 minutes a day to check and to ensure our house is not a breeding site for Aedes larvae. Some of the residents complained about the RM100 fine but for me it is a good reminder because RM100 value cannot compared with the value of your loved one.
