Of the dead, eight residents of Merauke. While the other two from the District Digoel. These figures, it is fantastic when compared to previous years. Development is still unknown for the next several months later.

It was announced Nefil when met at the Hotel Megaria, Wednesday (24/7). “Indeed, judging from the number, very high when compared to the previous year. In fact, claimed the lives of especially children up to ten people. Of course this is the duty and responsibility of all of us at times to come, “he said.

Meanwhile, Chief Medical Officer of Merauke, Stef Osok admitted, with a high number of these, so do not blame the public agencies. Various steps have been done starting from granting extension to abate or fogging. Only, it’s not the final step.
