Rs. 50,000 fine on mosquito breeders

KURUNEGALA: A new law will be introduced shortly to fine people up to Rs. 50,000 for ignoring the threats posed by mosquito breeding, Health Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva said.

Addressing heads and members of the local Government bodies in the Puttalam and Kurunegala Districts on the challenge of the health sector at a workshop in Kurunegala, the Minister said the Ministry had earlier taken steps to bring an enactment to impose a fine of Rs. 25,000 against house owners and those who are in-charge of public property who do not maintain the environment in a clean and healthy manner and do not control mosquito breeding.

"Health authorities have conducted awareness programmes on the dengue menace and its impact on people. However, people and entrepreneurs in major cities seem to not have given due consideration to this menace. Action will be taken to bring a new law with an increased fine upto Rs. 50,000 to fine people," de Silva said.

The Minister said a recent survey revealed that there were eight AIDS patients reported from the Kurunegala district. "These patients had been employed in the Middle East," he said.
