123 dengue fever patients found in Phuket

Dr Narinrat Pichayakamin, a Public Health Doctor of Phuket, said that the rising temperature in Phuket had made an increase of dengue fever patients likely. From the beginning of the year, there were 123 dengue fever patients admitted into hospitals in the island. Consequently, it made Phuket the 11th province in Thailand for the number of dengue fever patients.

May – December is the risky period since it’s the usual time for the mosquitoes to breed. Therefore, Phuket Public Health Office asks people to destroy any possible habitats of the mosquitoes around their residences to stop them breeding.
