HÀ TĨNH — Authorities in the central coastal province of Hà Tĩnh have taken measures to tackle dengue fever in Thạch Hà District and Kỳ Anh Township.

The provincial’s Preventive Medicine Centre has supplied dozens of litres of chemicals to be sprayed to get rid of mosquitoes in areas hard-hit by dengue fever.

Workers from the centre were also dispatched to dengue hotspots to help local residents kill mosquitoes.

A 25-year-old man from the district’s Thạch Long Commune was diagnosed with dengue fever on September 22, a few days after which 14 others in the commune contracted the disease.

All the patients were initially treated in Thạch Hà Hospital, three of whom have recovered and left the hospital. Nine others are now being treated in Kỳ Anh Hospital and Kỳ Long Commune’s Health Clinic. —VNS
