Saiful Bahri, Fatin Azura (2017) Study of environmental condition and the level of aedes infestation in Puncak Alam / Fatin Azura Saiful Bahri. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Introduction: The potential influence of high dengue vector density may have a relation to the environmental condition where people exposed to the dengue disease transmission. In depth study is needed in order to understand this transmission by implement the effective technique that influenced human vulnerability to this vectorborne disease. Objective: The objective of the study was to assess the Environmental Condition Index (ECI) as an indicator for Aedes mosquito infestation in dengue risk area. Methodology: In this study, a minimum hundred houses in each nine zones were selected using systematic technique to determine ECI score as well as to placed 30 ovitraps container. Four paramaters of premise condition evaluated are house condition, front/yard condition, degree of shade and drainage facilities. Result: To assess the size and direction of the linear relationship between environmental condition index (ECI) and mean eggs per trap (MET) of Aedes albopictus, a bivariate Person’s correlation coefficient (r) was calculated. The bivariate correlation between these two variables was positive at F A r=0.115; p=0.765 and Y A r=0.32; p=0.935 which clearly showed the usefulness of this method. Conclusion: This preliminary analysis helps in conducting rapid technique to identify and detecting the existence of Aedes eggs with a minimal number of manpower. It can conclude that this study found the environmental condition influences the level of Aedes infestation.
