Dengue situation in Thailand shows signs of easing

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to share the latest official announcement from the Ministry of Public Health’s Department of Disease Control (DDC) that the dengue situation in Thailand is showing signs of easing.

The number of patients with dengue fever has continually decreased, according to the DDC. It also noted that relevant sectors continue to implement preventive measures in many areas where heavy rain persists.

The DDC has strengthened a multisectoral implementation of the preventive and control measures since the beginning of this year.

The DDC has also advised that locals and tourists protect themselves and their children from mosquito bites by sleeping in rooms with mosquito screens or under mosquito nets and by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants and applying mosquito repellent to exposed skin or to clothing when staying outdoors, especially after sunrise and before sunset.

TAT is constantly monitoring the situation and strictly follows the guidelines and measures set by the Ministry of Public Health. For additional Information, please call the DDC hotline 1422.

Latest factsheet updated by TAT as of 16 October 2018 at 14.00 Hrs.
