Bina Item Bahasa Inggeris DKBB 2012 Paper 1 Section D SET 11 Questions 27 32 Read the fact sheet and answer the questions Myths and Facts about DENGUE Myth 1: Aedes mosquitoes bite only at night, so I need only worry about protecting my family from the dengue carrier during the later part of the day. Fact: Aedes mosquitoes can bite you and your family any time of the day. The mosquitoes are activated by changes in light intensity, which makes them particularly bloodthirsty at dawn and dusk. But all-day protection is still the best, especially for babies or adults who are bedridden. Mosquito netting, aerosols, mats, coils, liquid vapourisers or insect repellent creams and lotions should be used for such people to minimise the risk of being bitten by the Aedes mosquito. Myth 2: If I keep my house clean and dust-free, I will not have any mosquitoes. Fact: Mosquitoes are not like household pests such as flies and cockroaches that thrive on dirt. The Aedes mosquitoes are particularly fussy about cleanliness. Given the choice between dirty and clean water, it will go for the latter. Thus, your house may be spotless and still harbour Aedes larvae. To be safe, keep changing the water in your vases, potted plant saucers and refrigerator trays every five days. Keep a lid on any long-term water storage containers when not in use. Clean the sides or your water containers regularly to wash away the eggs. It you cannot change the water, use larvicides to keep your vessels Aedes larva-free. Myth 3: Dengue is a disease that affects mainly children. Fact: It used to be thought that dengue was primarily a health hazard for children. But the Aedes mosquito is just as likely to bite an adult as a child. In fact, everyone is at risk. Myth 4: Once I've had dengue, I cannot get it again as Im immune to disease . Fact: If your have dengue, your body will produce antibodies against the virus. These antibodies stay with you for about a year but if you are bitten by the infected mosquito during this time, you can still come down with the fever. In fact, some doctors believe if you are bitten again while you still have the antibodies, you are likely to develop the more serious dengue haemorrhagic fever. However, this is still a point of debate. (Taken from Sunday Star, November 15, 1998) 21

Parts of the town looked like the sea and the buildings looked like islands. People began to evacuate using any means they could. Some walked through the water, many used rafts or anything that would float to carry their belongings. Strangely enough, there were many people who enjoyed playing and swimming in the muddy water. However, I was too afraid and refused to go near the water. My uncle had a house high up on a hill, so my family stayed with him. Then, one morning, the rains suddenly stopped and the sun appeared. Everyone was overjoyed. But it took another week for the flood waters to go down. When we went home we were shocked to see the condition of our house. It was full of mud and stank.

Faridah bt Sharif, 14 Jalan Perdana, 09000 Kulim, Kedah. ____________________________________________________________________________ The Police Superintendent, Kulim Police Station, 09000 Kulim, Kedah. 22 FEBRUARY 2012 Dear Sir, Be Severe With Road Bullies I would like to complain about a serious problem that has been plaguing the residents of Kulim lately. It seems like a free-for-all on the roads in Kulim everyday. In the town, it is common to see a motorist or a motorcyclist going against traffic flow or beating the red light. It can be quite frightening if the offender is heading towards you. If one is not alert while driving, both parties can end up in a fatal accident. When confronted, these road bullies can become extremely aggressive. 2. Many of them make illegal u-turns, ignore No Entry signs, go against traffic flow and some even dare to beat the traffic lights especially during peak hours when the traffic is heavy. 3. The police should put up a road safety campaign, to nab all those inconsiderate and reckless motorists in town. They must be fined heavily if caught on the spot during the campaign. Unless the motorists learn to abide by the traffic rules, there is nothing much we can do to reduce the accident rates. I hope the authority will look into this matter before it becomes worse. Thank you. Yours sincerely, Faridah (FARIDAH BT. SHARIF)

How does food poisoning happen? Most cases of food poisioning are beyond the consumers control because there are food which may have already been contaminated before they are bought. Many outbreaks are due to unhygienic food handling practises by manufacturers and retail outlets. A decrease in the number of food inspections means that these poor food practises go unchecked. Also, food poisoning can occur when we eat at restaurants. Again, there is little that we can do, but we can control how we handle food at home. Safety tips The key to food safety is to keep hot food hot and cold food cold. Bacteria multiply in temperatures between 6C and 60C. A single bacterium can multiply to more than two millions in seven hours at these temperatures. Also, we should pay particular attention to home and personal hygiene. This can ne done by always keeping our kitchen clean and washing our hands well before handling food. For most of us, safe food handling begins in the supermarket and continues at home. Shopping Dont buy products with damaged packaging. Check the use-by or best-before date At hawker stalls, make sure the hawker wears gloves and uses tongs to pick up food. Select hot foods or refrigerated and frozen foods last, so that they dont sit in your trolley for too long. Separate hot, cooked foods from cold food in your trolley and when they are packed at the check-out-counter. Dont leace groceries sitting in your car, and if you have a long trip home, take a cool pack for frozen foods. At Home Read food packaging and labels carefully to learn how and where food should be stored. If you do not intend to eat meat or poultry within a few days, freeze it. Put a date on packaging before putting it in the freezer. Thaw meat, poultry and fish in the fridge. Cook thawed meats immediately, especially if thawed in the microwave oven. Do not re-freeze unless the meats are cooked first. Raw meat, poultry and fish can contaminate other foods, so keep them separated. Keep the fridge at 4C or less and freezer at about -18C Anything that comes into contact with raw food a knife or chopping board, even your hands should be washed before it is used for handling cooked food. 40
