Mr. Kwadwo Owusu Ansah, Health Director for Asene Manso Akroso District, has encouraged people to use Long Lasting Insecticide (LLI) mosquito nets. He made the call at Badukrom, Akyem Asuoso suburb, to mark this year’s World Malaria Day held on April 25. He said mosquito breeding increases during the onset of rainy seasons and that, desilting gutters, avoidance of bushy areas within towns, and indiscriminate dumping of refuse should be avoided. Over 400,000 people died from the disease in 2019, two-thirds of them were children under age five, and more than 90 percent of them in Africa. Despite advances in technology, malaria is still preventable and treatable.
