Dengue fever explodes in Surat Thani

Dengue fever explodes in Surat Thani - TNA, February 11, 2005
Dengue fever is making a comeback in Thailand's southern province of Surat Thani, with 70 cases already reported this year, the province's chief health official revealed today.
Mr. Phumiwit Khwanmuang warned that unless sufficient control and prevention measures were put in place, lives could be lost, as they were when the disease hit the province two years ago.
The province is now campaigning for all households to destroy the breeding grounds for the mosquitoes which spread the disease, while local officials are spraying houses with smoke as a mosquito repellent.
