Multiple Brazilian states continue to fight dengue fever

Many municipalities in Brazil continue to struggle with major outbreaks of dengue fever. Recent reports of cases and outbreaks continue from the following states: São Paulo, Bahia, Paraná, and Roraima. Many other states have previously reported major outbreaks of dengue fever. There may be many unreported cases since counting and reporting may be hampered by lack of local access to health care, and many persons with mild illness may not seek health care. Travellers to areas where the dengue fever virus is active can reduce their risk of exposure to dengue fever virus by taking all necessary precautions to avoid mosquito bites.
