Director General of Health Services: Consultant Dr Anil Jaasinghe says, there is a possibility for a rise in Dengue.
Dr Jaasinghe notes, the highest number of dengue mosquito breeding grounds have been identified in schools and construction sites. He says, with regard to schools, although awareness has been raised on a number of occasions, an improvement has not been seen. Therefore, he cautions, in future such schools will be made public, by affixing a sign outside the school which will read: “This School is a Breeding Ground for Dengue Mosquitoes”.
He hopes school principals and teachers will take speedy steps to prevent their schools from falling into this unfortunate situation.
