Monsoon Disease Precautions

 

Let's all take simple actions to prevent ourselves getting from Dengue, Chikungunya & Malaria:

  1. Prevent formation of water catchment areas around our residence (gutters, uneven concrete, pot plant, discarded tires, etc.).
  2. Disrupt any standing waters every week to prevent hot-spots for breeding disease-carrying mosquito adults.
  3. Reduce, Reuse & Recycle wastes wherever possible.
  4. Wear protective clothings (Long-sleeve, light-coloured, using bed-nets).
  5. Use approved insect repellent.
  6. Contribute ourselves towards mosquito-free monsoon in Bhutan.
