Dengue fever is on the rise, according to health officials.

According to the National Dengue Control Unit, the spread of dengue has increased.

According to Najith Sumanasena, Chairman of the Government Entomologist Association, the density of dengue larvae in the country has increased due to heavy rain, resulting in a high number of cases in some areas.

According to the Chairman of the Government Entomologist Association, fuel shortages have also hampered dengue control efforts.

Meanwhile, the Government Medical Officers’ Association warns that if dengue fever spreads unchecked, it could turn into a major epidemic.

According to the association, dengue outbreaks, which occur every five years, are likely this year if necessary action is not taken.

The most recent dengue epidemic was reported in 2017.

The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) warns that the number of preventable deaths from dengue fever will rise this year due to a severe shortage of medicine and a loss of public attention due to the country’s crisis.
