Sri Lanka Public Health Inspector’s (PHI) Union has decided to boycott all field duties during ‘Dengue Prevention Week’ commencing February 06 to 13, 2013.

President of the trade union Upul Rohana said three main demands of the Public Health Inspectors had been ignored by the government for more than a year and compelled them to resort to trade union action in this manner.  (Jude Samantha)

    I spent my weekend in hill country and a full evening down under the bush and in the creek. To my horror I found millions of mosquito larvae in between stagnant waters in the middle of small rocks after the recent downpour just less than couple of yards. Nobody seems care and funny faces when I raise the issue.
    My first thought was to spray salt water but I feared it might affect the fishes and the eco system.
    Dengue prevention Inspectors: Please do something!!!

    ‘Dengue Prevention Week’ without PHIs? Huh?

    Stagnant water in the drains of Colombo North are full of mosquito larvae. PHI's should look into those rather than blindly passing them along the roads and go to houses to check water in tonic lids or shells of snails. Also they should inform the residents to cut branches of their trees if leaves fall into the gutters of neighbor's roofs and clog down the pipes.

    Be prepared to get tied on to trees.

    Ranjit Wednesday, 06 February 2013 08:00 AM

    Mosquitoes will be happy. At least some group in Sri Lanka is supporting them in spreading Dengue.

    Minister Wednesday, 06 February 2013 08:09 AM

    In any case they do nothing about Dengu. So not big difference!

    Dr. Mervin, Where are you.... We need more ropes and more trees to tie them..

    Yohan Perera Wednesday, 06 February 2013 08:34 AM
