The reports from & # 39; doctors leave the agents of & # 39; An Indian Ocean Health Agency (ARS) as soon as possible intervened on & # 39; s dengue cases were reported.

Affected areas

In general, epidemic cases are declining, though most of the island's municipalities remain concerned:

– More than half of the admitted cases lie in the south of the island, including Saint-Pierre, Petite-Ile and Saint-Joseph.
– In the west, a decrease in the number of cases is observed in all municipalities, with the exception of Saint-Paul where the number of cases stabilizes.
– In the north, municipalities increase their share of cases, especially in Saint-Denis and Sainte-Marie.
– In the east there are cases in Saint-André and Saint-Benoît.

If symptoms appear (high fever, headache, muscle and / or joint pain feel completely tired), it is recommended to immediately consult a doctor and continue to protect against bites. As a reminder, if the mosquito bites a sick person, it can transmit the illness to a healthy person.
