“Moreover, we can see that now, I would say the rain is abnormal: it can continuously rain for three days, and then the weather is hot for four days. This causes puddles from the rain to create breeding places for mosquitoes,” Pambudi explained.

He listed several strategies for handling dengue, including carrying out risk management, increasing access to public services, strengthening surveillance, and involving the community and the government.
