Dengue Fever Ravishes Southern Vietnam

Nguoi Viet, Jami Farkas Posted: May 19, 2009

More than 13,000 people in southern Vietnam have contracted dengue fever already this year, and 11 of them had died as of early last week, the director of the Pasteur Institute said.

The south, where the disease is far more prevalent, accounts for 84.4 percent of the current number of dengue fever cases nationwide, Dr. Huu Tran told a press conference. Dengue is no longer restricted to the rainy season and could strike at any time of the year, he said. It is among the top five infectious diseases with the highest number of cases and deaths in Vietnam.
