355 355

THE third phase of a mosquito prevention programme began in mid-August, with the slogan ‘Prevent Japanese Encephalitis (日本腦炎) and Dengue Fever (登革熱), Act Now’.

The eight-week campaign, which will last until 10 October, will pay extra attention to areas close to homes, schools, construction sites, public housing estates and hospitals, the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD, 食物環境衛生署) said.

The department arranged a media visit to Tuen Mun (屯門) yesterday to show how staff conduct Japanese encephalitis vector surveillance and anti-mosquito measures.

A 36-year-old man living at the Hong Kong Gold Coast Residences (香港黃金海岸住宅) was confirmed in August to have contracted the mosquito-borne Japanese encephalitis virus, the third local case in as many weeks.

Department staff showed their continued anti-mosquito work in the vicinity, including larviciding (滅蚊子幼蟲), fogging and eliminating potential breeding grounds in public places.

Meanwhile, the department is continuing with the vector surveillance programme in Yuen Long (元朗), where cases were reported earlier, and will review its antimosquito strategy based on the data gathered.
