Australia : Dengue Fever outbreaks in northern Pacific

Via ABC Radio Australia :

" Medical authorities say a dengue fever outbreak that has claimed at least two lives in the northern Pacific has peaked.

In the state of Yap in the Federated States of Micronesia more than 900 people remain infected, while in Marshall Islands where 1,400 people were infected just a few new cases are being reported each day.

A World Health Organisation medical epidemiologist based in Suva, Dr Eric Nilles says there's no connection between the outbreaks as they are different strains of the fever."
