    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Cases of dengue this year in Costa Rica reached 38,497 last September 21, which is the highest number since the emergence of the virus in the country in 1993.

    The latest report from the Ministry of Health indicates that 38,497 cases so far in 2013 exceeded the previous record of 37,798 recorded throughout 2005.

    In 2013 the authorities recorded 111 cases of severe dengue so far and no confirmed deaths from the virus that transmits the mosquito Aedes aegypti, although there are six cases of death under research.

    The director of the Ministry of Health Surveillance told reporters that the most affected areas are Limón, Guanacaste and Puntarenas, both in the Pacific coast.

    The Costa Rican authorities insist that people should take extra precautions, especially the elimination of places with stagnant water.ACAN-EFE
