Friday, 21 June 2013 - 8:07


Sri Jayawardene University Zoology Division Professor Nissanka de Silva says that the steps taken by the Government for Dengue Eradication have been unsuccessful.

Speaking to our news team, the professor said that the Government did not consult the experts of the University System as well on Dengue eradication.

The professor pointed out that although fumigation for Dengue eradication should be carried out at the proper time, the health authorities performed it in the wrong way.


Our news team inquired about this from Health Ministry Secretary Dr. Nihal Jayathilaka.

The Secretary said that in the future the Ministry hoped to obtain the cooperation of University experts as well.
