Dengue Cases Continue To Increase In Thailand

From Bernama, excerpt :

" A total of 6,013 new cases of dengue infections were reported in Thailand from July 9-16, bringing the total number of cases, so far this year to 73,902, which is three times higher than the last year figure over the same period, according to the Public Health Ministry.

The ministry said 73 deaths were reported throughout the country so far this year, and the number of cases is expected to go upward this month and next month due to frequent rains and high number of dengue mosquitoes, Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.

The ministry has set up "Dengue Corners" at hospitals nationwide for people to check for the mosquito-borne viral disease."
