Military To Be Deployed In War Against Dengue

The government is considering deploying the military to fight the spread of dengue.

Health Ministry sources said that the assistance of the tri-forces is to be sought as dengue continues to spread following the recent rains.

The recent floods which affected most parts of the country have resulted in the spread of dengue mosquito breeding grounds.

With health officials struggling to contain the spread, the government is expected to obtain military assistance to clear dengue mosquito breeding grounds.
