The number of dengue fever cases in Malaysia has reached an alerting state during the past few years. Despite the millions of ringgits been put into a research to find cure for the disease, the outcomes were nothing. No cure and no vaccine, but questions in the mind that starts with; why?
Dengue fever has existed for more than 300 years. During most of that time, it was described as unpleasant, but seldom a deadly disease. However, once a lethal variant called dengue haemorrhagic fever or DHF appeared in the 1950s, the intensity, frequency and deadliness of the disease outbreaks have started.
We are happy of the initiative taken by building owners to have a mosquitoes free environment. The effort of their initiative for the safety of their guests and occupants need to be applauded.
