The World Health Organisation says that there is a threat of contagious diseases increasing in the near future through Dengue carriers.

WHO points out that with the increase of global warming there is a tendency for the increase of disease breeding carriers.

A WHO delegation including Sri Lanka’s WHO representative  Dr. F. R. Mehethaa met the Health Minister and held a special discussion on this.

On this occasion they pointed out that the global increase of carrier diseases could affect Sri Lanka as well.

Generally mosquitoes, flies and fleas have been identified as disease carriers.

It has been found that these carriers spread diseases like Malariya, Dengue, Lishmenia shees, Lime Disease and Japanese ensepalitis.

The WHO delegation pointed out that in the near future it is important particularly to pay more attention on prevention of the spread of the Dengue disease.
