Dengue fever in Mexico (update)

Several states in Mexico continue to report cases and outbreaks of dengue fever, however, the latest reports have been from Sonora (Guaymas-Empalme and Hermosillo) where cases of dengue fever have doubled in recent weeks. There may be many more cases of dengue that are not reported. Counting and reporting cases may be difficult due to lack of local access to health care. Many persons with mild illness do not seek health care. 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.
