What is Dengue Fever?

Dengue fever is an infectious tropical disease caused by the dengue virus transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes. It can progress to more a deadly form of the disease known as dengue haemorrhagic fever and cause death, and they infect 50 million people a year, including 500,000 serious cases requiring hospitalization. (source: WHO) 

Thailand’s rainy season, running from May through September, is also the high risk period for dengue fever, a potentially serious condition most prevalent in tropical countries, but particularly in Northeastern of Thailand. 

Thailand has reported large numbers of Dengue cases nationally. Cases have been reported in Bangkok, Rayong, Samutsakorn, Nakornpathom and Phuket. 

Health officials say Bangkok is reporting the most cases with 17.34 cases per 100,000 population. The Public Health Ministry has predicted dengue fever cases will jump more than 16% this year. The department estimated the number of cases of dengue infections to rise from 142,925 last year (2015), 141 of which were fatal, to 166,000 this year (2016).
