A Battle on Standing Water

Highest Rates of Dengue Fever Infections Located in South Denpasar

(1/25/2014)

The rainy season accompanied by high temperatures are blamed for an increase in the number of Dengue fever cases in Bali's capital city of Denpasar.

The capital's high population density facilitates the easy spread of Dengue and have recorded already 36 cases in Denpasar, halfway through the month of January 2014.

Municipal health officials have identified South Denpasar as a pocket of Dengue fever infections. Sri Armini, head of the Denpasar Public Health Service, told Bali Post, "South Denpasar is an area with many repositories of standing water that become the nests for mosquitoes."

To prevent an increase in the number of cases of Dengue fever, Armini wants Denpasar residents, particularly those living in South Denpasar, to cover and clean all water receptacles, bury all garbage and trash, and dispose of all abandoned tires that serves as water accumulation points and could become mosquito nests.

Bathroom areas are favorite breeding grounds for the mosquitoes that spread Dengue, therefore demanding  special attention to toilets and basins of "bak mandi." Residents should also look for any standing water within a radius of 100 meters from their homes, including discarded tires and empty tin cans now holding rainwater.

Fogging by Denpasar health officials is limited to neighborhoods in which cases of Dengue fever have been confirmed.

In 2103 two people died from Dengue fever in the city of Denpasar, a reduction over the number of fatalities in previous years.
