Although there haven’t been any recent outbreaks of dengue fever … the threat of the Zika virus is still making the news.
So the Hawai‘i State Department of Health is re-launching its “Fight the Bite” educational campaign about preventing mosquito borne disease. The department is putting up educational posters in airports, in busses, and will soon be running a series of ads on TV and radio.
Officials are urging the public to take the same precautions that were taken for dengue fever. Anna Koethe is the Public Health Information Coordinator with the DOH.
