Dengue, like Malaria, is mosquito-borne. However, it is a viral infection, still without a cure and considered very dangerous.
PNG had reported cases of dengue in 2016.
Early February this year, Sr Miriam Joseph from the nurse station at Stop N Shop – Rainbow also referred one positive case.
Thus, CPL has taken the responsibility to inform its staff about this infectious disease, to spread awareness within their shops.
Sr Joseph said especially during this rainy season, people need exercise preventative measures.
