MMC PLSB Organised Zika Awareness Day

03 Sep 2016

Date: 3rd September 2016 (Saturday)
Venue: Persiaran Saujana Impian

On 3 September 2016, MMC Pembetungan Langat Sdn Bhd (MMC PLSB) organised a community service activity on Aedes and Zika virus awareness around its sewerage pipe network in Kajang. The team collaborated with the President of Residents Association and their Health Bureau Officers, distributed flyers attached with Abate and did fogging exercise at Saujana Impian, Taman Impian Sejati, Taman Impian Kasih including schools at SMK Saujana Impian and SK Saujana Impian.

The Zika virus is spread primarily through the bite of certain species of infected Aedes mosquitoes. The best way to avoid the Zika virus is to prevent mosquito bites and eliminate its breeding sites that can prevent the disease from spreading. The awareness drive is hopeful for the society to attain awareness on the Zika symptoms and preventive measures while taking the responsibility to ensure that there is no possible Aedes breeding areas in their surroundings.
