GenPI.co – Cases of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) are said to increase along with the change of seasons each year. DHF can cause serious bleeding, a sudden drop in blood pressure that can lead to death.
For this reason, it is necessary to take preventive steps from upstream to downstream. This step is often referred to as the Eradication of Mosquito Nests (PSN) 3M Plus.
The first step of PSN is draining, which is cleaning the water reservoir at home. Second, closing water reservoirs tightly, and thirdly recycling used goods that have the potential to become breeding grounds for mosquitoes that transmit dengue fever.
