Australia : Residents warned to protect against dengue fever

Via ABC News :

" Authorities are urging people in Innisfail, south of Cairns in far north Queensland, to protect themselves against mosquitoes as they clean up the mess left by Cyclone Yasi as dengue fever cases rise in the town.

The number of confirmed cases of dengue fever in the town have more than doubled last week.
Fifteen people are now confirmed to have the mosquito-borne disease and about a dozen others have been tested."
