The Public Health Department is appealing to Vincentians to conduct regular checks around their homes at least once per week, to eliminate mosquito breeding sites, as the fight continues here to reduce the population of the Aedes Aegypti Mosquito, which transmits Dengue Fever.

This appeal was made by Senior Environmental Health Officer, Mrs. Shamanty Labban, during a media briefing hosted by the Ministry of Health.

Mrs. Labban suggested that persons can place live fresh water species such as Million Fish, in large bodies of water so these fish can eat the mosquito larvae.
