Nigerians have been advised to keep a clean and healthy environment by getting rid of mosquito-breeding sites in their areas of residence.
This call was made by Dr. Okechukwu Ossai, a medical expert and Hospital Administrator, Enugu State Hospital Management Board.
While speaking in Enugu, on Tuesday, Ossai stated that maintaining a high level of hygiene was the only way to eradicate malaria.
He also highlighted the importance of using insecticide-treated net in curbing malaria.
“Insecticide-treated net is important for both adults and children as this is another way by which malaria can be prevented,” he said.
He stated the need to always remove refuse from drainage as well as clearing stagnant water in one’s environs.
