    Fumigation will not stop dengue menace. We must destroy the breeding sites.

    Sri Lanka's weather mainly causing for this and countries' obsolete buildings, drains
    and drainage system. We as country experience heavy rains and as tropical weather
    prevailing country having more rains. but still no permanent solution to 'dengue
    breeding. Similar weather experiences in Malaysia, S'pore and Indonesia and even
    Thailand but wonder how they eradicated this 'Dengue..No results from government
    many propaganda..Sad for innocent lives..!!

    The medical faculty students who have contracted dengue should learn to protect themselves from infectious diseases before becoming doctors and treat patients.
