Dr Datuk Mah Hang, chairman of the Perak health committee, said soon that despite the 62% drop in dengue cases so far this year, he said that the parties should continue to work to reduce this number.
\"As far as we are concerned, we have done what needs to be done.
We have taken a lot of steps to reduce dengue cases, \"he told reporters after hosting an anti-dengue conference.
On Monday, the dengue fever committee meeting was held at the city renovation center in Ipoh.
\"We have made a lot of achievements in reducing statistics, but I hope we can further reduce them,\" he said . \".
Measures taken include reminding students to keep their surroundings clean during school rallies.
