KUALA LUMPUR, 4 Aug (Malaysiaaktif) – Dengue cases are decreasing, with Klang Valley recording better figures before Hari Raya Celebration.
The health ministry will keep on supervising the flow of the cases for further updates and changes
“Dengue figures are slightly better than before Hari Raya, with between 2,800 to 3,000 cases a week and during Raya it dropped because there were less people in Klang Valley” said Health Minister, Dr S. Subramaniam during media conference in Hospital Shah Alam this morning
“Now the people are back, we are following if it will increase again”
The minister praised local authorities for improving their services in maintaining the environment clean.
He also cited that disorganised garbage collection could be a factor for the spread of dengue in the state.
“We have been monitoring, and since my visit to Kampung Kayu Ara and Kajang, I must say local authorities in Selangor have improved their services”
“Dengue is an issue of environmental cleanliness, and if we don’t take care of the environment it is difficult to handle dengue,” he said.
