Residents in Manicaland have been urged to be on the lookout for Malaria as most cases are recorded during this rainy season. Manicaland Health Promotion Officer Mrs. Agnes Mugumbate said people should visit nearest clinics for testing of malaria and subsequent treatment, adding that cutting of grass, getting rid of all containers that can collect water and filling all pits which can hold water is important as this will destroy potential breeding and resting places for mosquitoes. She added that the Ministry of Health and Child Care’s annual malaria control programs, particularly the Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) is currently ongoing and is expected to end next month.
