Dengue fever

According to a report by the Democratic Voice of Burma there is a dengue fever outbreak in Mae La camp. Although dengue is common in the area at this time of year in such confined quarters it highlights the need for more mozzie nets. Although the authorities  do their best to protect residents by rigorous spraying to kill mosquitos in and around the camp nets are still the best protection against the spread of such diseases.
