BY ERMIZI MUHAMAD
SUBANG JAYA, MAY 26: The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) recorded a reduction in dengue cases by 46 percent, from January until early this month.
Its Acting Yang Dipertua, Mohd Zulkurnain Che Ali said 2,490 cases were reported compared to 4,669 in the same period last year.
“Based on case distribution study, dengue fever in MPSJ area is mostly focused in condominium areas.
“Residents’ attitudes and the lack of a Joint Management Body (JMB) are the main causes preventing the effectiveness of dengue control initiatives,” he said.
He said that this morning while chairing the MPSJ Council Meeting No 5/2017 at the Kenanga Conference Room.
Meanwhile, Mohd Zulkurnain said, MPSJ has identified 17 dengue localities in that period based on zone in Subang Jaya, Seri Serdang, Seri Kembangan dan Kinrara.
Following that, MPSJ with Petaling District Health Department as well as the relevant authorities will solve the issue and identify the source of Aedes habitat.
