Dengue fever is widespread in Honduras

So far this year, there have been 728 reported cases of dengue fever. The most affected areas include Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, Choloma, Danlí, Choluteca, Comayagua, La Ceiba, Tocoa and El Progreso.

Many cases of dengue fever 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.
