Dengue has affected more than 700,000 Hondurans

Machine translated article from El Heraldo :

" The Health Ministry found that more than 700,000 Hondurans have had dengue fever once in their life.

The head of dengue program, Dr. Roxana Araujo, has warned that these 700 thousand people "are at risk of dengue hemorrhagic fever, and dengue type that gives those who have had the classic" he said.

The gallery said that this figure is not to make the public panic, but to take measures to clean their homes and eliminate breeding places of Aedes aegypti.

Destroyed farms

Health has so far invested 20 million Lempiras in the campaign against dengue, which has been reduced by 74 percent over the previous year."
