    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Costa Rican Ministry of Health reported today that from January 1 to February 15 of this year they have had 1,262 dengue cases, a decrease of 64.5% compared to the same period in 2013.

    This figure is 64.5% below the 3,553 dengue patients that were counted in the same period for 2013.

    Despite the decline in cases, the health authorities of Costa Rica insist that people should take extra precautions against the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the transmitter of the disease.

    In 2013, Costa Rica closed the year with a record of 49,993 cases of dengue, 151 of them serious, and one death.

    Last year the Ministry of Health spent nearly $6.5 million in campaigns and preventive measures against dengue across the country.

    This virus appeared in Costa Rica in 1993 and since then has killed 23 people. In 2007 there were the most deaths in Costa Rican history, with a total of 8 people.

    The mosquito breeds in stagnant water, especially during the rainy season (May to November), although the disease is present throughout the year. (ACAN-EFE)
