Puerto Rico considers island-wide fumigation plan to avoid spread of dengue fever

Senator Luis Daniel Muniz asked today [28 Aug 2009] of the newly appointed secretary of the Department of Health, Lorenzo Gonzalez, that he promote a massive fumigation plan for the entire island to avoid the spread of dengue [virus transmission].

Muniz's demand comes after seeing the most recent Health report relating to dengue, according to which in the past week there were a total of 150 new suspected dengue cases, bringing the total of possible carriers of the virus in Puerto Rico so far this year, to 3256.
