CityNews – Chiang Mai Municipality campaigns to raise awareness on dengue.
On the dispersion of dengue in Chiang Mai with already a few fatalities, Chiang Mai Municipality, the area with the highest number of dengue patients, has taken action to combat the disease. Ultra-low volume (UVL) insecticide has been applied once every week on many areas, including temples and schools. The Village Health Volunteers are also working on reporting at risk households. The municipality urges citizens to destroy puddles, and those in need of sand can make a request to the Village Health Volunteers office in the community.
