Fiji's Ministry of Health has declared a clean-up day next Thursday for residents in the central division as it ups the tempo against a dengue fever outbreak currently experienced in the country.

On the day, residents in Lami, Suva, Nasinu and Nausori are required to identify and properly dispose things that may facilitate mosquito breeding.

Health Ministry’s media officer Evelyn Mani said damaged white goods such as washing machine, TV and refrigerators must be placed on the roadside for collection.

 “The ministry warns that any resident found guilty of breeding mosquitoes after the 16th of January, 2014 will be liable for prosecution,” Mani said.

Between November last year and 6 January 2014, a total of 478 dengue fever cases were reported with the majority recorded in the central division.
