The seasonal change in weather is being cited as the cause for the seasonal increase in the number of dengue fever cases being handled at the Denpasar Sanglah General Hospital. The good news, however, is that when compared to the same month one year before, the number of dengue fever cases is on the decline.

The month-to-month increase from January to February in the number of patients suffering from dengue – a form of malaria – is evidenced by growing lines of patients complaining of dengue-like symptoms.

According to Radar Bali, as many as 25 patients were admitted each day in February suffering from the disease, a 50% increase from the number reported during the month of January.

Another Denpasar hospital, RS Wangaya reported 38 dengue admissions in January and 12 in February. Meanwhile the Kapal Hospital in Badung warded 15 dengue patients in January and treated 22 as outpatients.

The secretary of the dengue fever team at the Sanglah General Hospital, Dr. Ken Wirasandhi, blamed the change in local weather as the cause for any increase in the disease. “A change in the weather from rain to heat has made the vectors for dengue fever – the mosquitoes – grow in number,” explained Wirasandhi.

Because of the growing mosquito population, the public is urged to increase precautions to combat the potentially fatal disease by safeguarding their personal health and practicing good hygiene in the management of their personal living environments.

Dr. Wirasandhi said the good news is that when compared to the same month one year before, the number of dengue cases is on the decline. While February 2011 saw an average of 80 new dengue cases reported each day, that number has decreased to 25 in February 2012.
