Measures you need to take against the spread of dengue fever today!

Today there is a public information truck driving around the island giving out a long message in Thai.

The truck is from the health service and is asking island residents to take preventative measures against the spread of dengue fever that is now a huge problem on the island.

Residents of the island are being asked to attend to any standing water that quickly becomes a breeding ground for the mosquitoes that spread the disease.

If you have any standing pots of water please cover them.

Please check your house and outdoor plants to ensure they are not sitting in a pool of water in the saucer underneath.

If you have plants that grow in tubs of water then please either buy some fish to live in the water that will eat the mosquito eggs or buy some fertilizer to put into the water that will prevent mosquitoes from laying their eggs there.

Please check around your house for any stagnant water or still water and either pour it away, cover it or put fish in it.

Dengue fever is a nasty disease that can kill so please help keep it under control in Samui by taking these measures immediately.
