On 3 September 2016, MMC Pembetungan Langat Sdn Bhd (MMC PLSB) organised a community service activity on Aedes and Zika virus awareness with communities around its sewerage pipe network in Kajang.
MMC PLSB team collaborated with the President of Residents Association Zone 10, Parliament Hulu Langat and their Health Bureau Officer for flyers and Abate distributions to the communities involved. Fogging exercise were also held at residential areas in Saujana Impian, Taman Impian Sejati, Taman Impian Kasih including 2 schools at SMK Saujana Impian and SK Saujana Impian.
The Zika virus is spread primarily through the bite of certain species of infected Aedes mosquitoes. The best way to avoid the Zika virus is to prevent mosquito bites and eliminate its breeding sites in order to stop the disease from spreading. The programme was held to drive awareness on the Zika symptoms and its preventive measures to the local communities. MMC PLSB is committed to maintaining a clean and healthy site to avoid possible Aedes breeding around the area where they operate.
