Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture in China continues to report cases of dengue fever (update)

The Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan Province has reported a total of 581 cases of dengue so far. Some of these cases acquired their infection during travel to Myanmar, Thailand and Laos. There may be many more unreported cases of dengue since counting and reporting cases 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.
