QUẢNG TRỊ — At least 400 cases of dengue fever have been recorded in the central Quảng Trị Province, reveals a report released late last week.

While Đông Hà City reported the highest number of cases at 103, the remaining ones are from other districts in the province, including Vĩnh Linh and Triệu Phong.

Local authorities have asked agencies in Đông Hà City to inspect cleanliness and sanitation levels across the place.

The province People’s Committee has requested that a campaign be conducted to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds and fumigation be done to kill the disease-spreading insects.

The committee has also directed that an awareness drive be held to educate locals on how to prevent the fever from spreading further.

Quảng Trị is among the poorest localities in the country, and most of its areas, including Đông Hà City, are poorly developed. — VNS
