Dengue fever is also included in the annual outbreak that continues to this day. People should be more concerned with the surrounding environment so that mosquitoes that carry this disease do not breed and infect humans.
Prevent dengue fever with 3M aksi action
Dante said that the community took 3M actions to prevent BDB. Like what? Here are some of them:
Drain places that often become water reservoirs such as bathtubs, jugs, water towers, drums and other water reservoirs.
Close tightly to water reservoirs such as bathtubs or drums.
3. Bury or utilize used waste
Reusing waste of used goods that have economic value. This can also be an additional preventive measure, such as keeping fish that eat mosquito larvae, using mosquito repellent, and installing screens on windows and ventilation.
