(QCOSTARICA) Dengue cases continue to rise nationwide, but the Brunca Region, in the zona sur (southern zone) has become a focus of concern for health authorities.

As of May 23, 450 cases were recorded in that region, 215 of them in Pérez Zeledón, for which the Ministry of Health declared a “dengue outbreak” in the area.

Nationwide, 2,689 cases are reported, which represents almost 3 times more than the 920 cases that were registered on the same date in 2019.

  • Eliminate breeding areas such as used tires, containers, buckets, animal waterers and black plastics.
  • Apply mosquito repellent to exposed skin.
