Dengue - No cause for alarm now

Despite some distorted news items which depicted a bleak picture about Dengue, there is no cause for alarm about this disease.  3,500 cases of dengue and 350 deaths were reported in 2009 and due to new treatment methods adopted by the Health Ministry the number of patients and deaths were considerably reduced last year, amounting to 240 deaths.
