The heavy rains of June and May have passed, but Mosquito season is still in swing. And, the Ministry of Health today just got a long awaited shipment of mosquito killer Malathion.

COVID had slowed down the shipment of supplies, so the Health Department has been using leftover supplies from last year.

But, they have continued spraying in hotspot breeding grounds such as you see here in Belama Phase 5.

The new shipment of Malathion should be in the Ministry's warehouse by Thursday and spraying is expected to increase after that.
