The Health Bureau emphasized that it will continue to monitor and strictly prevent, and pointed out that due to the relaxation of border control measures in our country, the risk of dengue fever in the community has increased. It reminds citizens and friends that vases, potted plants and other containers should be changed frequently, and the inner walls should be cleaned regularly to avoid mosquito eggs. The environment continues to implement "patrolling, dumping, cleaning, and brushing" to prevent the breeding of vector mosquitoes and eliminate dengue fever.
