(2/11/2017)

The Municipal Government of Denpasar, Bali is increasing its efforts to reduce an anticipated sudden increase in the number of cases of hemorrhagic fever or Deman Berdarah (DB) that typically follows Bali’s rainy season.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the head of the Denpasar Health Department, Dr. Luh Putu Sri Armini on Monday, February 6, 2017, said that a number of steps have been taken by Denpasar including the establishment of a movement for the observation and control of mosquito nesting (Gema Petik).

The Gema Petik Movement involves some 17,000 family members in Bali recruited from every neighborhood in tracking down and elimination of mosquito nesting areas in cooperation with officials of the government.

To reduce the number of Deman Berdarah (DB) cases, the Denpasar Department of Health is intensifying the eradication of mosquito nesting areas through a program of mass fogging that took place in November and December.

Despite steps to reduce new cases of Deman Berdarah, Sir Armini revealed that the number of cases reported in December 2016 increased to 2,851 from the 1,576 cases reported in December 2015. This increase in DB cases mirrored similar increases in cases of the disease in all areas of Bali.

In fact, Denpasar ranks only 7th among all provinces of Bali in terms of reported DB cases.

Sri Armini called on the public to guard the hygiene of their homes and surrounding living space and avoid dangerous reservoirs or repositories of water that can become nesting areas for infectious mosquitoes.
