Civil servants and NGO’s in Labasa today joined the Ministry of Health in their extensive fight against Leptospirosis, Typhoid, Dengue and Diarrhoea in Macuata.
Commissioner Northern, Uraia Rainima, says the major clean-up campaign around Labasa is being organized in response to the recent increase in typhoid cases.
