VTV.vn - Vietnam has recorded more than 143,000 cases of dengue fever. However, in many provinces and cities, the situation has improved significantly.

 

In Hanoi, a dengue fever hot spot, the number of cases has decreased by 70% compared to a month ago. At its peak, Hanoi recorded more than 3,000 cases per week. But this week, the number was just over a thousand.

Health authorities in the capital are recommending that people still actively take measures to control mosquitoes, and work with the authorities to minimize the risk of new outbreaks.
