Dengue Fever In Thailand

Jun 21, 2018

The Ministry of Health of Thailand stated on the 20th that as of the 12th of this month, there have been nearly 20,000 cases of dengue fever in Thailand since this year, and 21 of them have died. The person in charge of the Ministry of Health stated that Thailand's climate is prone to breeding dengue fever vectors, which has caused the epidemic to be difficult to control effectively. It is expected that as Thailand enters the rainy season, the number of dengue cases will continue to rise.

According to reports, among the dengue fever patients in Thailand this year, primary and secondary students account for about 47%.

To prevent the spread of dengue fever, the Thai government called on people to pay attention to mosquito control during the rainy season. Health department personnel continued to travel to schools and residential communities to publicize dengue fever prevention and control. This year, they also went deep into the factories for dengue fever prevention education to prevent first-line workers from becoming infected.

Dengue fever is an acute infectious disease caused by the spread of the virus through mosquitoes. Its typical symptoms are fever, headache, and joint pain. It is common in tropical and subtropical regions.
