Disease control efforts against dengue fever will be elevated in the southern city of Kaohsiung, where more than 5,000 cases have been reported since May 1, Taiwan’s Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said Thursday.
As of the previous day, the city had reported 5,072 cases, an increase of 162 cases from a day earlier.
Nationwide, 26,353 cases had been reported, including 20,823 cases in neighboring Tainan, where the mosquito-borne disease has been centered this year.
More disease control efforts are needed in Kaohsiung as the outbreak there intensifies, while Tainan has begun to see the outbreak subside, the CDC said. [FULL STORY]
