The El Salvador Ministry of Health (MINSAL) reported 8,748 suspected cases of dengue through June 18, the highest number of cases in the last seven years.
Compared to the same period in 2021, there are 6,727 more suspected cases (2,021), an increase of 333%.
Hospitalizations for dengue already total 1,044, that is, 735 more than in 2021, which translates into an increase of 228%, according to the epidemiological bulletin.
“This is the time when there is an increase in cases of patients with dengue, because we have a rainy season. We spent practically three weeks in a storm and the humidity, and the amount of water that has accumulated, came to generate an increase in mosquitoes; and that caused people to get sick of this” said the official of the public network.
