3M is meant to drain, clean places that are often used as water reservoirs such as bathtubs, water buckets, drinking water reservoirs, refrigerator water reservoirs and others. Then tightly close water reservoirs such as drums, jugs, water towers, and so on, and the third is to reuse or recycle used goods that have the potential to become breeding grounds for dengue-transmitting mosquitoes.

According to him, this simple step is quite easy for residents to do, so his party continues to encourage residents not to get bored doing this movement. “As for the pluses, it is a form of additional prevention efforts, among others, in the form of keeping fish that eat mosquito larvae, mutual cooperation in cleaning the environment, planting mosquito repellent plants and so on,” said Alit Artika.
