THE British and New Zealand High Commissions in Fiji confirm that none of their citizens have been diagnosed with dengue fever.

"We have not received information if any British national has been diagnosed with dengue fever," British High Commission's communications and public affairs officer Joyce Rounds said.

New Zealand High Commission policy advisor Monika Mala said they had not been approached for consular assistance by any New Zealand visitors who had contracted dengue. The commission also updated its Safe Travel website yesterday.

"The advice notes that outbreaks of diseases like dengue are common in tropical and sub-tropical climates, and advises travellers to take precautions against being bitten by mosquitoes," Ms Mala said.

On its website, the travel advisory stated: "There has been a recent increase in confirmed cases of dengue fever in Fiji and Vanuatu in early 2014."
