Vanuatu reports first dengue case for 2019

The case was reported at Vila Central Hospital.

“The person with the infection is a visitor who was believed to be infected in another country before coming to Vanuatu,” said Director of Public Health, Len Tarivonda.

The Public Health Department is advising the public to take preventive measures to prevent the spread of dengue.

One of the best ways to prevent dengue infection is to avoid mosquito bites by wearing clothes that cover much of the body.
