Swarms of mosquitoes have appeared in Paphos due to this year’s increased rainfall, DIKO central committee member Chrysanthos Savvides said.

The issue is more concerning for children he said, as many of them have visited paediatricians with infected bites.

Savvides called authorities to intensify spraying against mosquitoes.

“Citizens are urged to take precautionary measures to avoid mosquito bites, in order to minimise the problem,” Savvides concluded.
