Mauritius: 36 cases of dengue fever within two weeks

35 cases of dengue fever have been identified in the past two weeks essentially in Port-Louis in the sector of Champ de Mars. Another case was also identified this weekend on the side of Mahebourg, in southern Mauritius.
People affected by the dengue virus have been admitted to a specialized unit of the Jeetoo hospital in the Mauritian capital for an adequate therapeutic care of the infectious disease.
The health authorities have already taken all the necessary measures to manage health risks, particularly with the use of insecticides in areas at risk. As a reminder, last year nearly at the same time about forty cases of dengue were recorded with the great majority of cases listed in the Triolet region in the northeast of Mauritius.
