Dengue Increases in Costa Rica

Nearly 21,000 people in Costa Rica have suffered dengue fever so far this year, the ministerio de Salud (ministry of Health) informed on Thursday.

The ministry said in a report that this represents a 621.6 percent increase over the same period last year, when only 3,326 cases were reported.

The number of dengue patients grew despite government's preventive campaigns urging the population to eliminate the sources of infection of the Aedes Aegypti mosquito, the agent that transmits the disease, the text added.
