From , 5:04 am on 5 April 2017

There are signs that a dengue outbreak in New Caledonia is stabilising as authorities work to bring it under control.

They declared a dengue epidemic in January and six people have died of the disease since then.

Jean-Paul Grangeon of New Caledonia's Health and Social Affairs Directorate told Tim Glasgow there's hope of respite when the cooler weather sets in.
