HCM City steps up anti-dengue fever efforts amid high infection numbers

VOV.VN - Ho Chi Minh City is ramping up dengue fever control efforts in various wards and districts following as many as 4,491 infections being recorded during the four-month period, including 109 severe cases.

In the face of the situation, the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee has called for closer coordination among relevant agencies in the fight against the epidemic, and requested hospitals and medical facilities throughout the city to prepare enough drugs, fluids, blood, blood-related products, and emergency vehicles for dengue fever treatment.

According to the statistics compiled by the municipal health department, April witnessed a sharp rise in cases of the mosquito-borne disease in several districts across the city, including Binh Chanh, Binh Tan, and Hoc Mon.

As a means of coping with this sudden climb in infection numbers, the southern metropolis has set up inspection teams in some of the districts which have recorded the most outbreaks, and monitor the implementation of dengue prevention plans, with a particular focus on destroying mosquito larvae.

Furthermore, the municipal health sector has also taken a range of drastic epidemic control measures, including launching a propagation campaign and actively responding to ASEAN Dengue Day on June 15.
