In an Instagram post, the ministry said that as Malaysia recovers from the Covid-19 outbreak, “efforts to eliminate dengue infections also need to be highlighted in the new norm.”

“Based on the trend of dengue cases over the last five years, MOH expects a SECOND WAVE from June to September 2020.”

“Together, let’s carry out “10 minit hapuskan Aedes” where we get rid of Aedes breeding grounds at your residential area every week.”

As much as we need to worry about the Covid-19 outbreak in our country, let us not forget that dengue can be dangerous to you and your family as well. So, please make sure to remove all forms of stagnant water in your homes or any other possible breeding grounds.
