Vanuatu heightens dengue concern

7:34 pm on 7 February 2017

Vanuatu's Ministry of Health has confirmed the country has 210 dengue fever cases.

This comes after over 1,000 suspected cases had been reported.

The Health Ministry has started a media blitz to encourage the public to report to the nearest health centre when a person is suspected to be sick with dengue.

A dengue zero tolerance campaign was launched last month.
