Head of Disease Prevention and Control Office of Buleleng Health Service, dr. Gede Suaryawan confirmed Thursday (02/13/2020) said the data on the number of positive DB patients was obtained from the health center report, as well as private hospitals and government hospitals.
Tejakula Subdistrict, especially in Les Village, is an endemic area of this disease caused by Aedes Aygepti mosquitoes. That was caused because in Les Village it was difficult to get clean water, so many residents built water storage tanks. This water reservoir that is not closed and rarely drained is one of the causes of the breeding of the Aedes Aygepti mosquito.
