Wichit –

The Wichit Municipality is fighting back against mosquito carried illnesses.

Yesterday (June 20th) the Public Health and Environmental Division of the Wichit Municipality rolled out its campaign to contain the spread of dengue fever.

Fogging to help prevent disease-bearing mosquitoes from breeding has been conducted across Wichit. The widespread fogging was carried at housing estates in the Wichit area.

Dengue fever has been a significant health risk throughout Thailand and this year has been a particularly dangerous one, according to Wichit Health and Environmental Division officials.
