What can you do to prevent dengue in your town?
How to help in the fight against dengue:
Step one: Educate your town about where mosquitoes like to breed. Methodically identify and eliminate stagnant water, one house at a time. Be especially wary of shady places out of direct sunlight.
Step two: Ask the Health Ministry to visit your town for an educational seminar and possibly to fumigate. Raise funds for the cause.
Step three: Keep yards clean and empty water receptacles every few days. Make sure that gardeners know to store wheelbarrows upside down so the water doesn’t collect in the bins. Put an end to puddles.
