Not the kind of statistics the Selangor state government will be proud of.
Figures released by the Ministry of Health for week 25, 2014 (15th to 21st June, 2014) show that Selangor accounts for 57% of reported dengue cases nationwide. And a staggering 4.6X the number in the corresponding period last year. According to a reliable and knowledgeable source, government and private hospitals are jammed with dengue cases.
There are 75 ‘hotspots’ nationwide, 64 of these in Selangor with Klang taking 3 spots. Better be careful than sorry later.
Fogging in Glenmarie Cove shall resume after a hiatus from fear on the part of GCD after someone had expressed concern that GCD may be liable should someone die as a result of the effects from fogging. Never mind the Aedes mosquito can actually kill someone.
Undaunted, Muhamad Asraf (Manager, Property & Community) went to the Health Department to clear the fog over the issue and he is happy to report (and thus resume his extra role as Fogger-in-Chief) that monthly fogging will resume after Hari Raya. All necessary precautions to protect the staff shall be taken.
