Dengue fever patients in Bangkok rise more than double

Recommended Posts

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s Health Office today reported a total of 13,000 dengue fever patients in Bangkok this year, more than double of last year’s patients.

The highest number of accumulated patients was in Saphan Soong district (476 patients), followed by Wattana (438) and Suan Luang (428).

It said that in the past one month from October 1- November 7, 239 people were found to be sick of dengue fever in Wang Thong Lang district, 188 in Thonburi, and 143 in Pathumwan.

It said most dengue fever patients in Bangkok were found to be infected with dengue virus type 1 or DENV-1, and type 3 or DENV-3.

The reason for the wide spreading of the fever this year was the delay of the rainy season that contributed to more breeding grounds for mosquitoes while life cycle of mosquito was also shortened to just 5-7 days.

In advised the best way, in addition to spray mosquito foams, to prevent the spread of dengue fever is to regularly or once a week check the breeding grounds of mosquitoes at homes and vicinities and destroy them.

That would mean picking up, not dropping in the first place, rubbish...
