No new cases of dengue fever are not fixed from Tuesday, 26 March. The Ministry of Health, it is too early to say that the epidemic is over. The period of 30 days should be in front of certain measures will be deleted.

Recent cases of dengue recorded in the country dates back to Tuesday, March 26. "From February 26 to March 29, there were a total of 58 cases of dengue fever.

The Ministry of Health does not guard down either. And in vain! According to a senior, it is too early to say that the epidemic is over. "It's like a smoldering fire that could resume at any time. Why is it necessary that no new cases are not registered for at least 30 days so that we can take some action on the ground, such as fumigation or spraying larvicide. But then again, the region will remain under observation, "says our source.
