Dengue reports

FORTY three cases of dengue fever have been confirmed by the health division in Nadroga.

Nadroga provincial administrator Peni Naqasenivanua said cause for concern is that the cases have been reported from everywhere across the province and also in the upper reaches of Navosa.

"We have submitted our reports to the divisional office but as of this week, we have received confirmed reports of 43 cases," Mr Naqasenivanua said.

He said seven of the patients reported being infected from areas outside Nadroga.

"They are mostly travellers from Suva, Nadi and Lautoka."

He said people infected by dengue were received from across Nadroga and Navosa from the hills of Keyasi, down to Sigatoka and to the coastline of Sanasana, Natadola, Semo, Korolevu to Drabuta Village.

Mr Naqasenivanua said the people of Nadroga must make it a priority to clean up their compounds in the wake of last week's rain.
