THE Health Ministry is urging Fijians to take seriously the advisories and warnings on the dangers of dengue fever issued by relevant health authorities.

In an Information Ministry statement released yesterday, Health Minister Dr Neil Sharma, said despite continuous warnings, confirmed cases of dengue fever presented to health facilities around the country indicated a lack of attention to warnings by health authorities.

"We now have a high number of confirmed cases of dengue fever across the country and a high percentage of these cases are from the Central Division."

"The fact is, dengue fever is serious and it can lead to death.

"So we are in a situation now where the public needs to take ownership and seriously consider the consequences if they fail to take these warnings."
