Folks, please take cautionary measures to avoid contracting Dengue Fever which has killed eight people in the first two weeks of this year.
It is alarming. Dengue cases doubled this year, compared to the same period last year.
According to the Health Ministry, from Jan 4 to Saturday, there were 3,211 cases with eight deaths compared to 1,514 cases and four deaths in the same period last year.
Another worrying matter is that of the number Chikungunya cases which is fasting rising.
The fight against the dreaded Dengue and Chikungunya is not the Health Ministry's or the respective State health department's alone.
Please read Doctor's 2008's Weblog on this. Very useful.
