The ARS vector control teams continue their mosquito control interventions day and night, by applying barrier measures against the spread of Covid-19.

These treatments against the proliferation of mosquitoes are essential to fight against dengue fever and must be accompanied by preventive measures implemented by the population of Reunion.

Below are the recommendations for authorizations to fight against dengue:

  • Eliminate breeding sites: empty anything that may contain water all around your home
  • Consult a doctor in the event of symptoms: fever, headache, muscle / joint pain, nausea, vomiting, fatigue …
  • Protect yourself and those around you against mosquito bites

These protective measures also apply to people who have already contracted dengue.
