Dengue fever continues in Fiji

Reports of cases of dengue fever increased by 170 cases last month, bringing the total for the year to 382 cases. Most of the cases have been registered in the Northern Division.

Travellers to areas where the dengue fever virus is active can reduce their risk of exposure by taking all necessary precautions to avoid mosquito bites. Many persons with dengue fever do not seek medical care and are not reported to health authorities. There may be many more cases in the community than the reports indicate.
