US - Hawaii : New cases of dengue suspected

Article from The Maui News :

" Three new cases of dengue fever are suspected in Hana, along with a possible case in Haliimaile and an additional two or three Upcountry, according to health officials.

Maui District Health Officer Dr. Lorrin Pang also said at least one of two cases previously suspected in Keanae has been confirmed by a laboratory in Hawaii, although he was still waiting for official verification from a Center for Disease Control lab in Puerto Rico.

Residents should take steps to protect themselves by clearing standing water and brush from their yards, and using mosquito repellent when going outside, he said."
