Dengue threatens

Last year, Malaysia recorded 46, 364 cases of dengue with 92 deaths. More people will be infected. Aedes mosquitoes carry dengue virus; they sting their victims easily.
     Aedes breeds in still and clear water within and outside residential houses including leaves retaining water on trees. They thrive.
     Thousands of house owners have received notices of compounds imposed by local authorities. More will have to pay fines because Aedes-breeding sites are found in the vicinity of their houses.
