He also informed that the agency uses operation vehicles with heavy machinery, fogging machines, new generation thermal equipment, and manuals, “we have spared no effort since the beginning of this administration to carry out these tasks of prevention and strengthening for the benefit of the population throughout the state”.

He insisted on the call to citizens to leave the doors and windows of their homes open when the brigades circulate through their homes, health is a shared responsibility and he is grateful to the population for paying attention to this invitation.

Likewise, it is very useful for those who have pets to wash all containers and drinking fountains constantly, covering those containers that accumulate water, getting rid of those that can serve as deposits, and turning over containers and dishes to prevent them from becoming potential breeding grounds.

He also recommended the population to take additional preventive measures, such as the use of repellents, household insecticides, and protecting windows with screens, while insisting on the importance of keeping their yards clean, tidy, and free of hatcheries, he concluded.
