High risk for dengue fever during Tonga’s warm weather


Tonga remains at high risk for dengue fever after two cases were reported in Tongatapu last month, said the Director of Health. He advised the public to become more vigilant in prevention efforts, while the weather is warm. Tonga’s near neighbour, Fiji, is currently facing its worst outbreak of dengue in 16-years with eight reported to have died there since February 28.
