Thailand recorded a total of 11,000 dengue patients with the death toll of 21 people during January to May this year.
The DDC Director General urged the public to keep their houses clean and make sure that there are no dark corners where mosquitoes can take shelter. He also suggested the general public to cover water containers in and around the house with lids, in order to eliminate the breeding grounds of mosquitoes.
