PAHOA, Hawaii – Puna residents had a chance to talk face to face with state and county officials about the ongoing dengue fever outbreak spreading across Hawaii Island.
Most residents asked general questions about mosquito control and repellent, or the philosophy behind the different maps being produced by government agencies. At least one resident, however, had very specific concerns about Puna’s alternative communities that may be at higher risk of acquiring the disease.
The discussion was a part of the December 3 public meeting at the Pahoa High School cafeteria.
