The Jaffna District Government Agent, N.Vethanayagan has ordered the Private Tuition Centres be closed for two weeks as part of the effort to control Dengu menace in the district. He had sent directives relevant to this all Divisional Secretaries of the district.
A meeting with the officials of the Health Sector was held at the District Secretariat day before yesterday regarding the control of Dengu menace in the District.
In the said discussion Health Officials had placed forward a special opinion. They have pointed out that in the context of the Dengu menace in the District, large number of students frequent the private tuition centres. As the environment in these centres is conducive to the spread of Dengu, these centres should be closed for two weeks, they had suggested.
Accordingly the Government Agent has sent the above said directives to the Divisional Secretaries and had requested the managements of Tuition Centres to offer cooperation in this matter.
