Public Health Min tells people to continue to destroy mosquito breeding sites

The Ministry of Public Health continues to ask people to destroy mosquito breeding grounds in its effort to contain the outbreak of Zika virus.

public-health-thailandPublic Health Minister Dr. Piyasakol Sakolsattayathorn said his ministry has been making every effort to contain Zika virus. Any pregnant woman or anyone suspected of contracting the disease should seek medical attention immediately.

Doctors will be able to provide proper care if their blood is tested positive for Zika virus. The Public Health Minister also encouraged people to keep their homes dry to prevent Aedes mosquitoes from laying eggs and spreading mosquito-borne diseases.

The Department of Disease Control reported that more than 40,000 people came down with dengue fever from January to September this year. Out of that figure, 33 succumbed to death. However, the death toll was said to be lower by half compared to the same period last year.
