Martinique confirms 6 dengue fever deaths since outbreak began


Health officials in Martinique have disclosed six deaths due to dengue fever since the outbreak begin, according to local reports.

Health authorities said the dead include a nine-year-old boy who died this week.

Since the outbreak began, 13 severe cases of the illness have occurred.

In August, Martinique health officials declared that the Island had entered the epidemic phase of the mosquito-borne disease.

The health officials and the prefecture have urged the populace to join the dengue control and prevention effort by eliminating mosquito breeding sites, protecting themselves against mosquito bites and immediately seeking medical attention if they experience dengue fever symptoms.

The World Health Organization (WHO) lists the most common dengue symptoms, including high fever, headache, body aches, nausea and rash.

The WHO explained that most people would improve in 1–2 weeks.

However, it noted that some people develop severe dengue, which includes shock or respiratory distress due to plasma leakage, severe bleeding, and organ impairment, resulting in death.

“There is currently no specific treatment for dengue. Therefore, case management focuses on managing pain symptoms with Acetaminophen,” the WHO stated on its website.
