Avoiding Dengue Fever
This viral disease is transmitted by the bite on an infected mosquito. The disease is found in many of the hotter tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. Many cases are reported from the very popular tourist islands of southern Thailand and also from Viet Nam (particularly around the Mekong Delta region). However it is worth remembering that Singapore has experienced one of its worst Dengue Fever outbreaks in well over a decade. See the associated pdf file for further information.
