Dengue Fever in Cairns 

QUEENSLAND Health declared an outbreak of dengue fever in Cairns last year, after four residents tested positive for the mosquito-borne disease.

Cairns Regional Council officers may go from house to house looking for mosquito breeding sites to stop the dengue fever outbreak spreading.

The Council’s Environmental Assessment Manager Laurie Phipps says most residents are protecting their properties.

However, Council is can apply a $400 spot fine for residents who do not protect their homes against Dengue fever.

Mr. Phipps says all residents should clear water from around their property.

Councillor Rob Pyne said, “I support strong action. Firm action is needed when people put their own health and that of their neighbours at risk, by refusing to comply with directions from Council.”
