Dengue Fever Update

The New Zealand Government Safetravel website carries the following advice about Dengue Fever, which is included in the Singapore Travel Advisory:

There are seasonal outbreaks of dengue fever in North Queensland, Australia, in many parts of the Pacific, as well as countries in Asia (including Singapore and India) and Latin/South America.  Dengue fever is a serious viral disease spread by the bite of infected mosquitoes.

As there is no vaccine to protect against dengue fever, travellers to these regions are advised to use insect repellent, wear protective clothing, and stay in lodgings where there are mosquito screens on windows and doors.  If you feel unwell during your trip or in the first two weeks after your return, you are advised to seek immediate medical advice.  For more information on Dengue Fever see the WHO factsheet on dengue fever [external link].

More information on the dengue situation in Singapore can be found at www.dengue.gov.sg
