13 dengue hotspots in Subang Jaya municipality - Increase in dengue hotspots

  Mohd Shubhi       Saturday, June 30, 2018

THERE are now 13 dengue hotspots in Subang Jaya municipality, from the previous six. They comprise;
  1. DK Senza Condominium (Jalan Taylors)
  2. Nadayu Residence (PJS 11/7)
  3. Lagoon Perdana (PJS 9/11)
  4. Kampung Kenangan, Batu 13
  5. Main Place (USJ 21)
  6. Jalan USJ 2/5
  7. Jalan Teratai
  8. Jalan Puchong Perdana
  9. Taman Puncak Kinrara 2 (Block A and B)
  10. Vista Pinggiran Putra
  11. Lestari Perdana flats
  12. Serdang Perdana (One South)
  13. Serdang Perdana 5 (Sky Villa Block Kesidang and shoplots)
To-date, there are 121 dengue cases reported.

At the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) fullboard meeting, its president Noraini Roslan said many dengue cases centred around high-rise residential buildings because of the joint management bodies’ (JMB) failure to keep the areas clean, paving the way for Aedes mosquitoes to breed.

However, she said there was a drop in dengue cases from the end of 2017 to early this year, before it increased in June.

Noraini said the Selangor Health Department inspected all 13 hotspots, while MPSJ was asked to inspect three locations and clean up open areas at the high-rise residences.

She added that there could be other reasons for the increase in dengue cases, one of it being the buildings’ design.

At One South Serdang Perdana, the non-accessible air wells between individual lots are choked with rubbish, resulting in stagnant water when it rains, leaving room for mosquitoes to breed.

MPSJ Health director Dr Roslan Mohamed Hussin said warnings were issued to the JMB to clean up their premises immediately.

He said a RM500 fine would be imposed for each breeding spot found on the premises.
