With this development, the Health Bureau has again recalled and stepped up dengue fever prevention programs. The Jumantik paintings continued to move and the 3M movement was resumed again.

Jumantik cadres or maggot watchers are volunteer officers in each neighborhood who are tasked with visiting people’s homes or paying attention to their environment so that there is no place for Aedes aegypti mosquitoes to breed.

The mosquito carrying the dengue virus requires clean, standing water or water that is housed as a place to lay its eggs.
