The number of dengue fever cases remain high on the island of Reunion. Following the emergence of dengue in 2017 and a first wave of epidemic in 2018, a second wave is underway and of even greater intensity.
Since the beginning of the year, 12,187 confirmed cases have been reported. In addition, another 31,500 suspect cases.
Cases are increasing in cities on the North, East and West of the island while the historical foci of the South ( St. Joseph, Little Island, Etang-Salé, St. Louis ) are still very active, but decreasing, except at Tampon, where the increase in the number of cases continues.
Since the beginning of the epidemic in 2018, 19,000 confirmed indigenous cases and 14 deaths have been reported.
