Massive dengue fever outbreak in the Northeast

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Massive dengue fever outbreak in the Northeast

Post by Kammekor » Sat Jun 29, 2019 9:12 am

Just came back from the Ban Lung Health center - it was literally filled up with children suffering from dengue fever. Some pretty bad. The authorities have acknowledged the problem and health center staff and medication has been sent to the remote districts where the situation is even worse.

Yesterday the authorities sent out staff with poison to clear up all houses in my town from mozzies. Unfortunately they did not send people to take a look around the houses to look for breeding grounds for the mosquitoes and teach the people about the life cycle of the mosquito.... So there will be less mosquitoes for just a few days....
