Permanent Secretary of Public Health Sopon Mekthon has convened a teleconference with the chiefs of provincial public health offices across the country to discuss preparations for the campaign to eliminate mosquitoes.
The MOPH has heightened its disease control measures in response to the recently confirmed case of the Zika virus. Mosquitoes are blamed for several viral diseases such as dengue fever, Zika fever and Chikungunya. Dr. Sopon has ordered all hospitals and public health offices nationwide to strengthen mosquito elimination in their workplaces and nearby communities from February 14 until April 13.
