Mozambique reports 16 confirmed dengue cases

Mozambican authorities Saturday confirmed 16 cases of dengue fever in the country’s north.

The disease broke out in Pemba, capital city of the northern Cabo Delgado Province. Another nine suspicious cases were also reported there.

Authorities attributed the outbreak of the mosquito-borne tropical disease to the heavy rains in the province in recent months while people already carry the virus.



The country’s health ministry said the situation was under control and it has sent medical staff to eliminate the vectors of the disease.

Dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever, caused fever and joint pains. The infectious tropical disease was last confirmed in Cabo Delgado Province in the 1970s.
