Last weekend I organised an anti-dengue program in PJS 9. This was a combined effort by my office, MPSJ, Rukun Tetangga of PJS 9 (RT), Jawatankuasa Penduduk Zone 2 (JKP) and Alam Flora. 3 positive cases have been reported since January 2009. About 15 residents turned up to assist in this program. MPSJ enforcement officers conducted spot checks at houses while residents and I moved in groups to knock on neighbours' doors to distribute pamphlets and sachets of the larvicide Abate. We walked for more than 3 hours and managed to cover 867 houses. When I saw the condition of the drains there, I instructed Alam Flora to begin cleaning them immediately and we discovered that renovation debris and tiles had clogged up the drains. Next week, we will be conducting spot checks in USJ area. You can read more about it in NST and The Star.
