6570_620

The number of cases of Dengue keeps increasing, with more than 7.000 cases so far this year, and the rainy season ahead of us.

Authorites say this year’s number is an increase of 300% over the same period last year.

The concern is that with the rainy season approaching, the number of Dengue cases increase. Authorities are calling on everyone to eliminate potential mosquito breeding sites.

Old tires and stagnant water just about anywhere can easily convert to a mosquito playground.

Dengue symptoms can easily be confused with the common cold: headaches, malaise, sore eyes and joints, etc.

Most of the cases this year have been reported in the Cental Pacific (Puntarenas, Jacó, Quepos, for example) and the Chorotega region.
