The Ministry of Health has decided to initiate a three day Dengue Prevention Programme targeting seven districts. The Ministry attributed the decision to the increase in numbers of dengue related cases in January.

Over 5,000 dengue related cases were reported last month.

Accordingly, the program will be conducted in Kegalle, Puttalam, Kurunegala, Vavuniya, Batticaloa and in the Western Province.
