Dengue Fever Takes Hold in Thailand1 min read
The World Health Organization has spoken out, asking the Thai government to increase its efforts to minimize the spread of the disease. According to the Bangkok Post, efforts to eradicate “breeding grounds for mosquito larvae like unsanitary pools, stagnant water, abandoned potted plants and automobile tires around the home, still need to be strengthened in communities, particularly urban areas prone to the disease.”
We continue to track the wave of dengue across Africa, the South Pacific, Central and South America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and now Asia. If you are traveling to any of these areas, be vigilant: protect yourself from the bites of mosquitoes.
