More than 400 cases of dengue fever have been reported in the country and Fiji’s Ministry of Health is urging the public to take the necessary measures to avoid being bitten.

Health Ministry’s communications officer Evelyn Mani confirms that between 1 January 2014 and 6 January 2014, a total of 195 cases were recorded of which 28 were reported in the West and 167 recorded in the central division.

In addition to the December end figures of 283, the total number of people diagnosed with dengue fever since the start of November last year comes to 478.

National adviser communicable diseases Dr Mike Kama is once again reminding all individuals to take equal responsibility.

“The breakdown of the prevailing dengue data suggests that the disease is not targeted, it is affecting all persons irrespective of ethnicity or creed, as such all individuals…[are] to follow the ministry’s advise to destroy mosquito breeding grounds and prevent oneself from being bitten by the dengue-transmitting mosquito,” Dr Kama said.

The ministry has also activated environmental teams to carry out house to house calls to assist the public in reducing the number of dengue cases.  
 
Meanwhile, the ministry is urging municipalities around the country to assist in cleaning up areas such as blocked drains, rubbish heaps and other possible mosquito breeding grounds.
