BINTULU: Dengue-fighting campaigns should not focus solely on activities as they should also be regarded as a pledge and commitment to wage an all-out war against the Aedes mosquitoes. Bintulu Education officer Fred Entau said the public must thus play their role in these campaigns to help prevent dengue outbreak. He pointed out that there were people who would rather spend money to create a safe home environment for themselves but ignored factors that contribute to Aedes mosquitoes breeding in their own backyard. “We forget that a small mosquito can be a serious threat in our lives,” he said at the Dengue-Fighting Carnival organised by SK Tanjung Batu here on Saturday.…
