Colombo (LNW): In the vast spreading of dengue across the country, the situation in the Gampaha district is getting out of control, warned the Public Health Inspectors Association.
The daily count of positive cases reported from Colombo and Gampaha districts is increasing and according to the statistics, the dengue infection is getting out of control in the Gampaha district, revealed Union Chief Upul Rohana, speaking to media.
The situation has occurred due to the inefficiency of the National Dengue Control Unit and provincial officers, Rohana claimed, alleging that they have failed to analyse data and take appropriate action at the correct time.
The PHI Chief urged the authorities to deploy officers and members of the public to conduct dengue prevention programmes to contain the spread of the disease.
