Hanoi (VNA) – The health sector of Hanoi is stepping up measures to prevent
dengue fever as the disease is likely to spread widely.


Accordingly,
functional agencies are asked to increase the monitoring of patients, mosquito density
and mosquito larvae rate to promptly detect outbreaks and spray chemicals in high-risk
areas.


The
agencies also work to encourage households to cooperate with health workers to
maintain the environment’s hygiene.


According
to the Health Department of Hanoi, the city recorded 438 cases of dengue fever in
24 local districts and 153 wards in the first quarter of 2017, a rise of 44
percent year-on-year, with no fatalities. Ha Dong district has the highest
