Dengue fever

I was reading that that there was an outbreak of dengue fever on Madeira in 2013. Just interested to know if there has been more reported cases in 2014 or recently?

1. Re: Dengue fever

Here you have a long post that covers the situation since 2012 tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g189166-i434-k5893…

The last entry (jun 24) says "There have been no reported outbreaks here, the ones reported 2013 were 'imported' by visitors. Since the very serious outbreak 2012 the authorities have been very pro-active in eradicating and educating residents on how to eliminate and avoid conditions for their activities. Nothing to fear from dengue here. There are some common mozzies around which are around every year and while annoying, not dangerous. Just take the usual precautions to help prevent being bitten."
