Dengue epidemic in Reunion: 403 new cases confirmed in one week – Health

-

Winter sets in. This period is favorable for a low circulation of the virus due to the cooler temperatures. Also, everyone’s efforts (health authorities, municipalities and inter-municipal authorities, population) must not be relaxed to curb the circulation of dengue as much as possible. The prefecture and the ARS remind the population of the essential recommendations to be implemented: consult a doctor quickly in case of symptoms, protect themselves from mosquito bites and continue to protect themselves even when ill to protect their loved ones, and eliminate larval breeding places all around his home.
