The Jakarta Post
DEPOK: Residents and health officials fumigated parts of Limo, Depok, on Friday after Chikungunya fever infected at least 200 people in the past month.
The outbreak was attributed to poor sanitation and poor awareness of the mosquito-borne disease.
There were several new cases in the neighboring districts of Tanah Baru and Pancoran Mas, according to the local health agency.
