Trunk, InfoPublic – Cases of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) in Batang Regency continue to increase. Based on data from the Batang Regency Health Office, there were 80 dengue cases in early June 2022, with three deaths.

Yesterday’s cases in 2021 were few, namely there were 25 cases of DHF with one death and in 2020 there were 266 cases with four deaths.

“The increase in DHF in Batang Regency this month experienced a significant increase starting from January when there were DHF cases, although in March there was a decrease,” said Staff of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases of the Batang Regency Health Office, Suwandi when met at his office, Friday (10/6/2020). 2022).

The infected cases of DHF in Batang Regency vary from children to adults, but are dominated by children under 15 years of age.

“The areas where there are cases of DHF are usually just blocked, for this year alone the most are in the Limpung sub-district, but the Reban and Bawang areas do not exist at all,” he explained.

To anticipate dengue cases in our area, we must improve environmental hygiene which we might have previously forgotten due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I advise the people of Batang Regency to be aware of the increase in dengue cases by eradicating mosquito nests,” he said.

The increase in dengue cases also has an impact on the increasing demand for fogging. To date, there have been 45 requests for which officers can do fogging from 150 to 200 houses in a day.
