In a follow-up on the dengue situation in Taiwan, the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today that the country has recorded 478 local cases as of July 19 this year, which is the highest in the same period in the past 10 years.
The CDC said it is necessary to continue to strengthen the elimination of breeding sources and increase the alertness of medical institutions. Those who have been infected with dengue fever, the elderly and high-risk groups must continue to pay attention to severe warning signs and bleeding signs.
The central government has activated a contingency mechanism and works with local governments to curb the spread of the epidemic.
